Prayer of Saint Francis

A friend’s mother just recently past away and she posted this on her Facebook page.

I wanted to share it too, since I lost my brother too. This is you too, Mom.

“Make Me A Channel of Your Peace”

Lord, make me an instrument of Your peace;
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
Where there is injury, pardon;
Where there is discord, harmony;
Where there is error, truth;
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.

A popular hymn version, adapted and set to music by Sebastian Temple, is “Make Me A Channel of Your Peace”.
