Remember I mentioned 2 days ago that sometimes it is best to digest profound writings in smaller bites? Well, here is the second half of St Francis of Assisi's prayer. Enjoy and be blessed:
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
