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.
  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.
