May God bless you with a restless discomfort
about easy answers, half-truths, and superficial relationships,
so that you may seek truth boldly and love deep within your heart.

May God bless you with holy anger at injustice, oppression,
and exploitation of people, so that you may tirelessly work for
justice, freedom, and peace among all people.

May God bless you with the gift of tears
to shed with those who suffer
from pain, rejection, starvation,
or the loss of all that they cherish,
so that you may reach out your hand to comfort them
and transform their pain into joy.

—Sister Ruth Marlene Fox

God to enfold me,
God to surround me,
God in my speaking,
God in my thinking,
God in my sleeping,
God in my waking,
God in my watching,
God in my hoping,
God in my life,
God in my lips,
God in my soul,
God in my heart.
God in my sufficing,
God in my slumber,
God in mine ever-living soul,
God in mine eternity.

Read Your Own Heart Right

We would have inward peace,
yet will not look within;
we would have misery cease,
yet will not cease from sin.

Once, read your own heart right
and you will have done with fears;
man gets no other light
though he search a thousand years.

—Matthew Arnold, 1852

The Gift of Humility

Do not seek too much fame,
but do not seek obscurity.
Be proud,
but do not remind the world of your deeds.
Excel when you must,
but do not excel the world.
Many heroes are not yet born;
many have already died.
To be alive to hear this song is a victory.

—Song from West Africa

Recently, people are burning name-brand apparel in response to the divergent viewpoints of companies and politicians are still drawing the ire of news-based media. Unfortunately, one thing that NEEDS to be changed is the activity of Child-Trafficking.
