Prayer of St. Francis of Assisi

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.

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 giving that we receive;

It is pardoning that we are pardoned;

And it is in dying that we are born to Eternal life.
