Today has been an introspective kind of day. One of those days where I’m just not feeling it.
This beautiful prayer speaks to me…it all comes down to love and selflessness. Thought I would share it with you.
Lord, make me an instrument of Thy 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 (1181-1226)
