Broken strings & Pretty things

The world, seen through a young girl's eyes.

May God bless you.

May God bless you with the 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, hunger and war,
So that you may reach out your hand to comfort them,
and to 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
to bring justice and kindness to all our children and the poor.

-Franciscan Benediction
