Franciscan Benediction- Philip Yancey

"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; 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 to comfort them and to turn their path to 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 will surely say cannot be done"

- Philip Yancey
