          Lord, make us instruments of Your peace. Where                                            
          there is hatred, let us sow love; where there is injury,                                  
          pardon; where there is discord, union; where there is                                     
          doubt, faith; where there is despair, hope; where there                                   
          is darkness, light; where there is sadness, joy. Grant                                    
          that we 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.                Amen.
