A Franciscan Blessing

May God bless us with discomfort

At easy answers, half-truths,

And superficial relationships

So that we may live

Deep within our hearts.

May God bless us with anger

At injustice, oppression,

And exploitation of people,

So that we may work for

Justice, freedom and peace.

May God bless us with tears

To shed for those who suffer from pain,

Injustice, starvation and war,

So that we may reach out our hands

To comfort them and

To turn their pain into joy.

And may God bless us with enough foolishness

To believe we can

Make a difference in the world,

So that we can do

What others claim cannot be done.
