May God Bless You with discomfort: at easy answers, at 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 from pain, rejection, starvation 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 thay you can make a difference in this work, so that you can do what others claim cannot be done. ~ A Franciscan Blessing
