Living Faith - sermons and notes


A Franciscan Benediction (for the comfortable)


May God bless us with discomfort at easy answers, half-truths and superficial

relationships so that we may live from deep within our hearts.


May God bless us with anger at injustice, oppression, and exploitation

of God's creations so that we may work for justice, freedom and peace.


May God bless us with tears to shed for those who suffer pain, rejection, hunger and war,

so that we may reach out our hands to comfort them and to turn their pain into joy.


And may God bless us with just enough foolishness to believe that we can make a

difference in the world, so that we can do what others claim cannot be done:

to bring justice and kindness to all our children and all our neighbours.
