Wednesday Words

Here's something I read this morning that is making me think.

"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 to self that we are born to Eternal Life.
Saint Francis of Assisi

I have always loved that prayer. It is even a hymn we used to sing at mass. I heard it so much growing up. (Catholic background I guess.) Thank you for reminding me of it.
