    Having a confusing life, but a great love of people, lately my mum at 83 is not doing so well. She had 9 children and incredible devotion and was fully human.

    She came from a Religious Background that left little room for frailty and imperfection, please, help me to offer God prayers that will see her Home safely.

    My favorite which I recite Daily and represents my mum is a Prayer of St.Francis Assissi (Died 1226 A.D.)

    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 darkness - light
    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
    It is in giving - that we receive
    It is in pardoning - that we are pardoned
    It is in dying - that we are born to eternal life

    Please, pray with me for my mum and all we love, and especially for each other where we come together to do exactly this.
