Let Us Be Agents of Peace

A prayer {By St. Francis of Assisi} to remember the 10-year Anniversary of 9/11.

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.
