Back in Oregon:  A Neighbor’s Magnolia Tree in Bloom Today

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 from pain, rejection, starvation, and war,

so that you may reach out your hand to comfort them and turn their pain into joy.

And may God bless you with enough foolishness…

to believe that you can make a difference in their world,

so that you can do what others claim cannot be done.

Amen

Blessings on your day,

Molly
