The Peace Prayer

By St Francis of Assisi (c 1181-1226)

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 
and 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.

St Francis of Assisi (1181/82-1226)

Passionate Catholic. Being Catholic is a way of life - a love affair "Religion must be like the air we breathe..."- St John Bosco Prayer is what the world needs combined with the example of our lives which testify to the Light of Christ. This site will mainly concentrate on Daily Prayers, Novenas and the Memorials and Feast Days of our friends in Heaven, the Saints who went before us and the great blessings the Church provides in our Catholic Monthly Devotions. "For the saints are sent to us by God as so many sermons. We do not use them, it is they who move us and lead us, to where we had not expected to go.” Charles Cardinal Journet (1891-1975) This site adheres to the Catholic Church and all her teachings.
