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 to 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.
