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
To turn their pain into joy.

And may God bless you with 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.

Amen.

Thank you for coming walkabout with me! I enjoy comments and will try to answer questions quickly if I have a way to reply to you. Sorry I have had to put the word verification back on... the spam jerks (especially the Serbian ones... yeh, I check your addys) have been overloading me lately.

However... I do not approve comments whose purpose is to spam. My readers do not deserve such garbage. I also do not allow anonymous comments. If you have something to say, then put your name to it.
