Personal Reflection

“If we are really called to carry the love of God far and wide, if we are to inflame the nations with this fire, if we have the vocation of setting the whole world on fire, if it is so, then how much I must myself burn with this fire.”


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; 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.

[PEACE PRAYER - St Francis of Assisi]
