Make Me an Instrument of Your Peace

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,
not so much to be understood as to understand,
not so much to be loved, as to love;
for it is in giving that we receive,
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned,
it is in dying that we awake to eternal life.

- St. Francis of Assisi

"PEACE BE WITH YOU" More than ever, we need to listen to these words of the Lord as our busy lives goes on. To have peace in our lives, we must invite the Holy Spirit to come and be present in whatever situation we are in. When the going gets rough, when stress sets in, and tempers run high, take a pause and pray "Come Holy Spirit" and things will fall into places and a bigger power takes over. Peace is letting go and letting God. Rest in the Divine Will and we shall have peace.

Lord, give us Your peace and make us instrument of Your peace. Amen!
