Today I was so upset to read all of the reports about terror plots
that might be taking place on February 11th....seems everywhere I
turned today people were talking about it. Is it this way in other
areas of the world?
My daughter, 17, was shaken by the reports - and for the first time in my 43 years as an American - I do not feel as secure as I once did in earlier times.
Times have changed to be sure....
I decided to put my worries to good use and create a small image in honor of peace....
"Peace Prayer of St. Francis of Assisi"
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.
For it is in giving that we receive;
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned;
and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.
