A Franciscan Blessing

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 wish for justice freedom and peace.

May God bless you with enough foolishness to believe that you can make a difference in this world,
so that you can do what others claim cannot be done.
Amen.
