“An Instrument Of Thy Peace”

2 04 2012

“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 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.”
― St. Francis of Assisi

You’re quite welcome, Kristin. It is beautiful. You might enjoy Franco Zeffirelli’s motion picture on the early life of St. Francis (“Brother Sun, Sister Moon”). A feast for the spirit and the senses.
