St. Francis pray for us

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
[No, it's not really by St. Francis]

And yes, def. check out Amy's post on today's Feast on one of the most misunderstood and mischaracerized saints, especially the section on Francis and the Second Crusade.
