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.

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.

Prayer of St. Francis of Assisi before the Blessed Sacrament

We adore You,
O Lord Jesus Christ,
in this Church and
all the Churches of the world,
and we bless You,
because,
by Your holy Cross You have redeemed the world.
