As the Global Body, may we always choose the way of peace, though it be the path least traveled. May we always choose reconciliation, though it be difficult and arduous and uncomfortable. May we always be agents of love and forgiveness and resurrection in our villages and cities and countries.
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
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.
