Quote by St. Francis of Assisi

The benediction quoted today in my church is also worth noting here, for your inspiration:

"Lord, make me an instrument of Thy 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. O Divine Master, grant that I may not 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 wer are born to Eternal Life. Amen." - St. Francis of Assisi
