The following prayer of St Francis is well known. There is so much depth in the words of his prayer that sometimes we lose the impact of each phrase and word. For me, it is best to 'digest' the words in smaller amounts - I appreciate their meaning more.
"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, hope, where there is darkness, light, where there is sadness, joy."
