This year Saint Francis will journey through Lent by exploring art and scripture. For the five Wednesdays in Lent we will be led in a Lenten journey, “Following the Life of Christ Through Art – Looking at the Cross”.

Peace Prayer
    Attributed to St. Francis

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.

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 pardoning that we are pardoned,
And it is in dying
That we are born to eternal life.
St. Francis
