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 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 is pardoning that we are pardoned;
It is in dying that we are born to eternal life.

- St. Francis of Assisi
