The Prayer of St. 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,
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 the giving that we receive,
It is in the pardoning that we are pardoned,
And it is in the dying that we are born to eternal life.
