St. Francis and the Vinca

Garden sculpture of St. Francis of Assisi, born 1181-1286, in Italy

Positive way to start the morning. 

Prayer of 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;
and 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
This is the prayer set to music for use in all Christian churches, not only Catholic.

Maybe it was October 4

Who was St. Francis, that Ace Ventura Pet Detective would emulate him?
