The prayer of St. Francis of Asisi: =====================================
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!
As my dearest #1# grandma said after each, holy mass: love one another, that's impossible but she ment have tolerance for each other, something is better than nothin! Yup, grandma, you were, are, will be always right 102%, big thanx for words of wisdom!!! Viva, Ave Magnificat, Bravo-Bravisimo!!!
This prayer is on his prayer card!
We met cardinal Bernardin on November 1 1994, we shook hands, spoke; his smile & saintly look were like JP2, he remains more respected than current Francis George!
Interesting thing: he died exactly 62 years to the day his dad died, no coincidence. While dying he managed to write inspirational book!
