A Franciscan Benediction
May God bless you with discomfort,
At easy answers, half-truths and superficial relationships,
So that you may live deep within your heart.
May God bless you with anger,
At injustice, oppression and exploitation of people,
So that you may work for justice, freedom and peace.
May God bless you with tears,
To shed for those who suffer pain, rejection, hunger and war,
So that you may reach out your hand to comfort them and
Turn their pain into joy.
And may God bless you with enough foolishness
To believe that you can make a difference in the world,
So that you can do what others claim cannot be done
To bring justice and kindness to all our children and the poor.
