The Perfect Storm

Jesus Christ Superstar (0:53 – 4:20)

Franciscan Blessing / Benediction

May God bless us with discomfort
discomfort at easy answers, half-truths, and superficial relationships,
so that we may live deep within our hearts.

May God bless us with anger
anger at injustice, oppression, and exploitation of people,
so that we may work for justice, freedom, and peace.

May God bless us with tears
tears to shed for those who suffer from pain, rejection, hunger, and war,
so that we may reach out our hands to comfort them and turn their pain into joy.

And may God bless us with foolishness
enough foolishness to believe that we can make a difference in this world,
so that we can do what others claim cannot be done.
