Franciscan Blessing

This is a prayer sent from my psychology seminar professor Riek before we took our final exam. I just want to post it again to remind myself of this prayer because I feel like I need such prayer as I begin anew. And blessing to those who read this prayer as well.

Sam

May God bless you with a restless discomfort about easy answers,
half-truths and superficial relationships, so that you may seek truth
boldly and love deep within your heart.

May God bless you with holy anger at injustice, oppression, and
exploitation of people, so that you may tirelessly work for justice,
freedom, and peace among all people.

May God bless you with the gift of tears to shed with those who suffer
from pain, rejection, starvation, or the loss of all that they cherish, so
that you may reach out your hand to comfort them and transform their pain
into joy.

May God bless you with enough foolishness to believe that you really can
make a difference in this world, so that you are able, with God’s grace, to
do what others claim cannot be done.

And the blessing of God the Supreme Majesty and our Creator, Jesus Christ
the Incarnate Word who is our brother and Saviour, and the Holy Spirit, our
Advocate and Guide, be with you and remain with you this day and
forevermore.

AMEN.
