Franciscan Blessing

“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, rejection, hunger, and war,
so that we may reach out our hands to
comfort them and 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, to bring justice and kindness to all our
children and the poor.” ( Franciscan Blessing)
