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 and
 To turn their pain into joy.
 And may God bless you with enough 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.



"treat, heal, and comfort always"

 "spiritual forming disciples of Jesus Christ with informed minds, hearts on fire and contemplative in actions"
