Daily Meditation


The Prayer of St Francis


Lord make me an instrument, of thy 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


Oh 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
