THE PRAYER OF ST. FRANCIS
Lord, make me a channel of thy peace,
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
Where there is injury, pardon
Where there is error, may I bring truth;
Where there is doubt, may I bring faith;
Where there is despair, may I bring hope;
Where there is darkness, may I bring light;
Where there is sadness, may I bring joy.
Lord, 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 that we recieve,
It is in pardoning that we are pardoned,
It is by dying that we are born to Eternal Life
