Happy 2009!

Lord, make us an instrument of
your peace,

Where there is hatred, let us 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;

Divine Master, 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.

  1. Robin, I was trying to decide what resolutions I should make this year and having a tough time with it. I think St. Francis’s prayer is the perfect New Year’s Resolution. Have a blessed New Year!


  2. This has been my personal prayer since 2001. Nice to see it on the first of the year as yet another poignant reminder that is is indeed, not about me. Happy New Year! ~KB
