Servant of Peace – 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

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 pardoning that we are pardoned

It is in dying to self that we are born to eternal life”

(St Francis of Assisi)
