Prayer of St. Francis

Very good meditation as we witness so much violence as a result of rebellion from the balance of the Christian order.  Echoing Mayor Holden of Baton Rouge in his statement on the horrific police shootings:

"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."

Prayer of St. Francis of Assisi
