Saint Francis

I am sure tomorrow will be a better day for storytelling.

Actually, today’s storytelling went well–things fell apart as I hit the “publish” button. As I hit that, my story disappeared. Poof!

Could it be a pre-Halloween thing?

So, once again, I went to my prayer collection. What a great find–on the top of the stack was my favorite, the Prayer of Saint Francis.

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.

I am…

B…simply being…

May God bless us all.

    1. Thank you, Sammyjokk. The Prayer of St. Francis is so beautiful. As far as my site–it is very hard because I am also very technically challenged. It is worth it, though. Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment.
