A Prayer by Francis of Assisi

st-francis-of-assisi-1643

Lord, make me an instrument of thy peace. Where there is hatred let me sow love; where there is injury, pardon; where there is discord, union; where there is doubt, faith; where there is despair, hope; where there is darkness, light; where there is sadness, joy. Grant that I may seek not so much to be consoled, as to console; to be understood, as to understand; to be loved, as to love. For it is by giving that we receive; it is by losing that we find; it is by forgiving that we are forgiven; and it is by dying that we rise again to eternal life, in Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
