Discussed my time in Italy and while in Assisi visited the church of St. Francis.  I felt that if we could all live by the words of this prayer our community and our world would be a greater place.

Peace Prayer of Saint Francis

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.


The group worked hard and there was little mumble chatter.  The Q – has a special gift for the PAX he brought back from Italy except he left it on the kitchen counter at his apt.
