Blessing

IN THE JEWISH TRADITION OF JESUS

Blessed are You, Lord God, Creator of the Universe!
Through Your goodness, we have this mystic, gripping, melody of struggle,
A cry for world peace and human brotherhood, sisterhood,
Which to us is the real presence of Jesus Christ,
In Whom we say,
Blessed are You!

(As offered by James Carroll at Emory University's MacDonald Lectures in 2011.)
