Thank You St. Frank

I had some business at St. Patrick's School today so I walked on over. After I was through I went into the sanctuary for a brief prayer. While I was there I noticed two windows with St. Francis and St. Claire and was reminded of a prayer attributed to Francis. I once pasted the prayer to the pulpit of the Wanilla Baptist Church to remind me of my own calling.

Lord, make me an intrument
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;
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.
Thank you Frank!
