Francis of Assisi
Lord, make me an instrument of Thy peace.
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
Where there injury, pardon;
Where there is doubt, faith;
When there is despair, hope;
Where there is darkness, light;
When there is sadness, joy.
Divine Master, grant that
I may not
so much seek
To be consoled,
as to console:
much to be understood as
not so much to be
as to love:
is in giving that we receive;
is in pardoning, that we are pardoned;
It is in
dying, that we awaken to eternal life.
God Almighty, Eternal, Righteous, and Merciful, give to
us poor sinners to do for Thy sake all that we know of Thy will, and to
do always what pleases Thee, so that inwardly purified, enlightened, and
kindled by the fire of the Holy Spirit, we may follow win the footprints
of Thy well beloved Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ.
