Prayer for Peace (St. Francis of Assisi)

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 seek not so much 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.


And as we begin this Advent holy season : 

At this Christmas, when Christ Comes, will He find a warm heart? Mark the season of advent by loving and serving the others with God’s own love and concern.

—Saint Mother Teresa of Calcutta
