for
For the of Others as Well as Self

May I become at all times, both now and forever
A protector for those without
A for those who have lost their way
A ship for those with oceans to cross
A bridge for those with rivers to cross
A sanctuary for those in danger
A lamp for those without light
A place of refuge for those who lack shelter
And a servant to all in need.

— Tibetan Buddhist prayer

Lord make me an instrument of Thy peace.
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
Where there is injury, pardon.
Where there is doubt, faith.
Lord make me an instrument of Thy peace.
Where there is despair, hope.
Where there is darkness, light.
Where there is sadness, joy.
0 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,
And it is in pardoning that we are pardoned,
And it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.
Then shall follow ,
And wonders shall never cease.
— St. Francesco di Assisi
