“…And it is in dying that we are born to eternal life….”

The Prayer of St. Francis

God gave His only begotten son, so that we might have life everlasting.  God didn't consider it a SACRIFICE, but a GIFT.

God gave His only begotten son, so that we might have life everlasting. God didn’t consider it a SACRIFICE, but a GIFT.

Lord, make me an instrument of Your peace;

Where there is hatred, let me sow love;

Where there is injury, pardon;

Where there is discord, harmony;

Where there is error, truth;

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.

 

            This prayer is often and widely attributed to St. Francis of Assisi, but it first

became known in 1927, and its true author is unknown. It has been quoted

by every major Christian leader and by several US Presidents and political leaders. …Blessings…cjlb……10/08/14
