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 pain, rejection, hunger, 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 the world
so that you can do what others claim cannot be done.
— Franciscan Benediction
Reminds me of something Mother Angelica said, along the lines of us having to do the ridiculous so that God could do the miraculous.
I needed this reminder today, Mike. Thanks for posting it. And blessings to you.
