Gam: 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. 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's in the giving that we receive, for it's in the pardoning that we are pardoned, and it's in the dying that we are born to eternal life. Amen.
