St. Francis of Assisi - Feast Day October 4th

Prayer of St. Francis

 

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;

And where there is sadness, joy.

 

Lord 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 by dying that we are born to eternal life.

Amen.

St. Francis pray for us.
