Feast of St. Francis of Assisi, October
our humble prayer,
for our friends the animals,
especially for animals
who are suffering,
for any that are hunted or lost,
or deserted or frightened
and for all that must be put to death.
We entreat for them all
Thy mercy, and for those
who deal with them
we ask a heart of compassion
and gentle hands
and kindly words.
Make us, ourselves, to be
true friends to animals
and so to share the
blessings of the merciful.
Albert Schweitzer (1875-1965)
The St. Francis Peace Prayer
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.
