    I would like to share this prayer with you. When I was in a Choir we sang it and it sounded beautiful.

    Prayer Of St. Francis

    Lord, make me an instrument of thy 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, and 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 forgiving that
    we are pardoned, and it is in dying that we are born to Eternal Life

    Mary.

    Mary, I just posted on the CC Board. I was wondering whether you have sold your place. I hope so. I've been keeping you in my thoughts and prayers.

    Love, Mikie
