This text is entitled A Franciscan Blessing, but it is often easier to identify a work by the first lines or a focal point, so I arrived at calling it Discomfort.

It is interesting that human nature is often motivated out of complacency and into supreme positive action by the heat of negative situations. In that context, discomfort, anger, tears and foolishness are wished upon us - to the end that we would live in relationships of integrity and depth, work for justice, freedom and peace; help foster comfort and joy, and all in all, be courageous enough to make a difference with our life.
