Saint Francis

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace.

Where there is hatred, let me sow love.

Where there is injury, pardon.

Where there is doubt, faith.

Where there is despair, hope.

Where there is darkness, light.

Where there is sadness, joy.

O Divine Master,

grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled, as to console;

to be understood, as to understand;

to be loved, as to love.

For it is in giving that we receive.

It is in pardoning that we are pardoned,

and it is in dying that we are born to Eternal Life.

------- Prayer of Saint Francis

In a world so dark and dying, Lord may we light a candle. When it is most inconvenient or trying. When we have to make sacrifices and strength. Spirit come and be our guide and our helper. May we being peace.
