A prayer

I just received this email in response to the school shooting and I thought it appropriate to share. 

Please take a moment now in your home, in your place of work, wherever you are...and pray for those who have lost their lives, pray for their families, pray for this community, pray for these students, pray for the safety and protection of all of our young people.

The Peace Prayer of 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 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.
