May God bless us with discomfort at easy answers, half truths, and superficial relationships so that we may live deep within our hearts.
May God bless us with anger at injustice, oppression and exploitation of people so that we may work for justice freedom and peace.
May God bless us with tears to shed for those who suffer from 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 enough foolishness to believe that we can make a difference in this world, so that we can do what others claim cannot be done, to bring justice and kindness to our children and the poor.
- Franciscan Prayer -
Prayer is foundational to what we do and we strongly encourage people to stand with us as we pray for our nation and its leaders. You can get involved with our prayer activities by:
