Channel Of Your Peace – St Francis Of Assisi

O Lord

make me a channel of your peace

Where there is hatred,

let me sow love;

Where there is discord, union;

Where there is doubt, faith;

Where there is despair, hope;

Where there is darkness, light;

Where there is sadness, joy;

Let me seek not to be consoled,

but to console;

Not to be understood,

but to understand;

Not to be loved, but to love.

For it is in giving that we receive,

In forgetting that we find ourselves,

In forgiving that we are forgiven,

And in dying that we are born to eternal life.

Amen.

 

– St Francis Of Assisi 1182-1226AD
