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.
