Text:

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; and 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.

Artist’s Comments:

I chose a quill pen as an image for this prayer because, as a calligrapher, when I consider what "instrument" I am in God's hands, I think of a pen. Whatever image we may have of how we are used by God, we can be confident that, as we seek to serve rather than to be served, we will be effective instruments in God's hands.

Michael
