Lord make me an instrument of your peace.
Where there is hatred let me sow love.
Where there is doubt, faith
where there is despair, hope
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 St. Francis of Assisi
