Prayer for Peace



Wishing all a Blessed and Healthy Christmas


As we go about our way this week, celebrating the birth of Christ, and remembering Christmas's past, and memories of loved ones; please take a moment to pray for the families left behind after the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School.



 

In memory of these precious angels who were rushed to heaven's door.


Prayer to Saint Francis of Assisi

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.

Amen.
