Lord, make me an instrument of your peace. where there is hatred let me sow love // may your love cause us to open up, cause us to open up our hearts. may your light cause us to shine so bright, that we bring hope into the dark.
Beautiful quote about when we need prayer. Although the quote is by Saint Francis de Sales, the picture is of Father Patrick Peyton, who prayed the rosary every day he possibly could and was known as "The Rosary Priest" for his dedication to promoting it. He also encouraged families to pray together because he believed "the family that prays together stays together" Beautiful: the family as the foundation of faith
Mother Teresa was a great admirer of St. Francis of Assisi. Her Sisters of Charity recite the peace prayer of St. Francis every morning during thanksgiving after Communion and many of the vows and emphasis of her ministry are similar. St. Francis emphasised poverty, chastity, obedience and submission to Christ. He also devoted much of his own life to service of the poor, especially lepers in the area where he lived. #2014HeroesProject www.ShannonWalbran.com
