A Four-fold Blessing

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 Savior,  and the Holy Spirit, our Advocate and Guide, be with you and  remain with you, this day and forevermore.
