A Non-Traditional Prayer...

I came across a prayer that I wanted to share with you. I had never read it before but I thought it was extremely befitting considering the current state of our nation with the #BlackLivesMatter protests and murder of #GeorgeFloyd. Many of us are outraged, sad, and overwhelmed.

The prayer is often referred to as the "Franciscan Blessing", "Franciscan Benediction" or "Four-Fold Benedictine Blessing" but it is actually titled "A Non-Traditional Blessing" and was written in 1985 by a Benedictine nun, Sister Ruth Marlene Fox, for a student group.

And it reads...

May this prayer convict your heart as it did mine.
