"Holiness is not the luxury of a few. It is everyone's duty: yours and mine."  ~Mother Teresa

Prayer of St. Francis of Assisi

 

Prayer of St. Francis of Assisi

Lord, make me a channel of Your peace,

That where there is hatred, I may bring love;

Where there is wrong, I may bring the spirit of forgiveness;

Where there is discord, I may bring harmony;

Where there is error, I may bring truth;

Where there is doubt, I may bring faith;

Where there is despair, I may bring hope;

Where there are shadows, I may bring light;

Where there is sadness, I may bring joy.

Lord, grant that I may see rather to comfort, than to be comforted;

To understand, than to be understood,

To love than to be loved,

For it is by forgetting self that one finds;

It is by forgiving that one is forgiven;

It is by dying that one awakens to eternal life. Amen.
