A 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 you with tears
to shed for those who suffer from pain,
rejection, 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 that we can make a difference in this world,
so that we can do what others claim cannot be done.
(A Franciscan Blessing)
