Oración de San Francisco

Señor, Haced de mi un instrumento de vuestra paz.
Que allí donde haya odio, ponga yo amor;
Que allí donde haya offensa, ponga yo perdón;
Que allí donde haya discordia, ponga yo armonía;
Que allí donde haya error, ponga yo verdad;
Que allí donde haya duda, ponga yo la fé;
Que allí donde haya desesperación, ponga yo esperanza;
Que allí donde haya tinieblas, ponga yo la luz;
Que allí donde haya tristeza, ponga yo alegía.

Oh Divino Maestro,
que no me empeñe tanto en ser consolado, como en consolar
en ser comprendido como comprender;
en ser amado, como amar;
pues es dando como se recibe,
perdonando es como se perdona,
y muriendo es como se resucita ala vida eterna

(padre nuestro, Ave María, gloria al padre y + santiguo)


Lord, make me a channel of thy peace,

that where there is hatred, I may bring love;

that where there is wrong, I may bring the spirit of forgiveness;

that where there is discord, I may bring harmony;

that where there is error, I may bring truth;

that where there is doubt, I may bring faith;

that where there is despair, I may bring hope;

that where there are shadows, I may bring light;

that where there is sadness, I may bring joy.

Lord, grant that I may seek rather to comfort than to be comforted;

to understand, than to be understood;

to love, than to be loved.

For it is by self-forgetting that one finds.

It is by forgiving that one is forgiven.

It is by dying that one awakens to Eternal Life.

Original writer unknown it is commonly associated with saint francis
and it may be removed because it isn't my work but i need to see it here from
time to time for reading.

4 my :eye: eyes only
thats's why it's a scrap
(forgive me if this offends anyone tho it's not meant to)

i want to read this when ever i feel paranoid or hurt in this site.
I want to draw strength from this. Why?
If every one gets to bash us Catholics because of a few fanatical fiends who
misrepresent us the way Jihad did to muslims ...
im just a guy who want sto be free to beleive what is the truth in my eyes
i won't push anything on you please dont bash me

I will write the St. Francis Prayer
because this little web space is my world
and i will not please ANY ONE in this manner
I respect everyone's views
and even if you don't respect mine
even when i have heard you bash it
(not directed at anyone in particular)
then let me express this in this web space
in this scrap that no one reads
just for once
let me

i send you a blessing even if you hate me
we all have our reasons why we do things
I have mine
this is for me ok
just me

my faith is alive, not stale
i fight for it every day trying to be good and kind
but people hate it and hate me in return
ridicule me

i dont expect anyone to understand
you aren't supposed to understand me
no one is
----and now------
the praye of
San Francisco de Asis

tutus tuum
