The Prayer of St. Francis




If you're having one of those days when deep breathing doesn't seem to help, contemplate this beautiful peace (yes, I meant to misspell it ;-). 
The sun is always shining behind the clouds.


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.
