PRAYER OF ST. FRANCIS OF ASSISI
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, and
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 were born to Eternal Life.
