Lord, make us instruments of your peace.
Where there is hatred, let us sow love;
where there is injury, pardon;
where there is discord, union;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
where there is sadness, joy.
Grant that we 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.
— Attributed to St. Francis

  3. Oh Michael – you are so ecumenical.

  4. I spent almost 25 yrs working for Carl’s Jr restaurants in various Corp management positions and we opened all of our meetings with this prayer.

  5. Please pray for my friend Roz, a wonderful27 year old mom of a 6 year old. She recently discovered she has a brain tumor the size of a marble between her brain stem and spinal column.
    She is having surgery tomorrow at MD Anderson to remove it.
    She’s a social worker and does much for the community. Hoping and praying she comes through with all facilities still functioning.

  6. Lord, have mercy on Roz.

  7. Had the date wrong. She’s in surgery now
