Peace

St. Francis of Assisi by Piero della Francesca

Today’s saint quote is a prayer that is attributed to St. Francis. It’s one that always reminds me that small things may not make a difference in the world, but a world of small things will. “Let it begin with me.”
 
Lord, make me an instrument of Your 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;
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;
It is in dying that we are born again to eternal life.
 
Amen.
