Franciscan Benediction

06-03-07Here’s a Franciscan Benediction (from St. Francis) that I think is cool. I found it on a Charlie Hall CD.

“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 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 that you can make a difference in this world, so that you can do what others claim cannot be done.”

Wow – I love it! Cool stuff! Yes God I pray that for all the Christians I know and for me too!
