We’ll be back in a couple of weeks with new episodes. In the meantime, please enjoy this series from the archives, one of my favorites!
Repost of Episode 56
This episode of the guided lectio divina podcast is the first in a new series on Prayers of the Saints. Today we’re using this prayer by St. Francis of Assisi:
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,
Where there is sadness, joy.
O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console, not so much to be understood as to understand, not so much 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 awake to eternal life.
