Prayer of St. Francis

Pin It

Don't Francis a Sissi
I heard part of this prayer quoted in "The Iron Lady" movie telling the story of Margaret Thatcher. I had to check it out for myself.

"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.

If every Christian...  Forget that...  If a few Christians where living this out... It would change the world.

St. Francis an avid bird lover
