A Franciscan Travel Blessing

This is one of my favorite quotes. I love the message. I used it on the last page of one of my daughter's high school scrapbooks, but it would be great for a graduation card too.


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 will 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 will reach out your hand to comfort them
and change their pain into joy.

May God bless you with the foolishness
to believe that you can make a difference in this world,
so that you will do the things that others tell you cannot be done.
