The 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; 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.

      Hello Sis! Those in the Catholic tradition are possibly more familiar with this. The first time I heard it, was in a hauntingly beautiful rendition sung by Sarah McLachlan.

      Another song she does, Ordinary Miracle really gets me as well. I’m just figuring out this blogging thing, I’ll try to post a link.
