The Prayer of 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;
                                      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 are born to eternal life.
