Words To Live By
"The safest place to be is within the will of God."
"The cold world needs warm-hearted Christians."
"Everything has its wonders, even darkness and silence, and I learn, whatever state
I may be in, therein to be content."
"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.
Oh 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.
It is in dying that we are born to eternal life."
St. Francis of Assissi
