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.
– Peace Prayer of St Francis of Assisi
