Expect Love

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; Where there is sadness, joy; O Divine Mater, grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled, as 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; It is in dying, that we are born to eternal life.


St. Francis of Assisi
