” Things fall apart, the center will not hold” (W.B. Yeats).
We need a miracle to save the day and our planet, the ground beneath our feet, the air we breathe, the food we eat, our source of all good things, including joy, love, hope in a better future for our children, the fulfillment of our lives, the very living of the lives given us.
And the world is thus in urgent need of saints and heroes, inspired leadership to bring this to pass. Time is short, the writing is on the wall for those who have the wit and focus to see it and understand.
So please pray believing with me tonight an old time-tested prayer that is always answered, never fails and is guaranteed to make a difference.
PRAYER OF ST. 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;
It is in Dying that we are Born again to Eternal Life.
