make Loved One, an instrument of Your peace.
Where there is hatred let them sow love;
Where there is injury, let Loved One sow pardon;
Where there is doubt, let them sow faith;
Where there is despair, let Loved One sow hope;
Where there is darkness, let them sow light; and
Where there is sadness, let Loved One sow joy.
O Divine Master,
Grant that Loved One, 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 Loved One, receives;
It is in pardoning that Loved One, is pardoned; and
It is in dying to self that Loved One, is born to eternal life
