Inscription

Prayer of St. Francis of Assissi:

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.

PRAYER OF ST FRANCIS
