          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

          is in pardoning that we are pardoned; and it is in                                        
         dying that we are born to eternal life.
