In Memory

Make me an instrument of your peace.
Where there is hatred, let me sow you love;
Where there is injury, pardon;
Where there is discard, union;
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 in
pardoning that we are pardoned; and it is in dying
that we are born to eternal life.
-St. Francis of Assisi
