Really great benediction

I feel a little bad posting this, as I don't know who I should attribute it to, but I do want to remember it.

May God bless you with discomfort at half-truths, easy answers, and superficial relationships, so that you will live deeply and from the heart.
May God bless you with anger at injustice, oppression, and the exploitation of people, so that you will work for justice, freedom, and peace.
May God bless you with tears to shed for those in pain, so that you will reach out your hand to them and turn their pain into joy.
And may God bless you with just enough foolishness to believe that you can make a difference in this old world, so that you will do those things that others say cannot be done.
The blessing of God, who creates, redeems, and sanctifies, be upon you and all you love, this day and forever more. Amen.
