For those of you who are struggling to revive what seems dead, or lost, or broken in your life, I hope this classic prayer will be an encouragement. We can do the impossible through Christ’s love.
Lord, make me an instrument of your peace:Saint Francis of Assisi
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.
