Words of Comfort - Celebration of Life

“Be still and know that I am God.”
Psalms 46:10

Prayer of 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 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.

- St. Francis of Assisi
