September 11, 2007

Today is the six year anniversary of the attacks on our nation on September 11. Today's post will be a bit different, and we'll resume our normal format tomorrow. But, today, I want to share with you a prayer that has meant much to me in my life, and I prayer it can speak to your heart today. It is a prayer that was given to us by St. 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.

Today, may we each be instruments that God can use in a powerful way.
