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.

Oh Divine Master, grant that I may seek
not so much 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;
It is in dying that we are born to eternal life.
Amen
