– Peace Pilgrim

“Our Father, who art in Heaven
Hallowed be thy name,
Thy Kingdom come, Thy Will be done
On earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread
and forgive us our trespasses
as we forgive our trespassers,
And lead us not into temptation
but deliver us from evil,
For the Kingdom, the Power, and the Glory
are yours forever.” Amen

“Our God who art our winged self:
It is thy will in us that willeth,
It is thy desire in us that desireth,
and it is thy urge in us that would turn our nights
which are thine, into days which are thine also.
Thou art our need,
and in giving us more of yourself
you give us All.” –Kahlil Gibran

“There is no way to peace:
Peace is the Way.”

I am what thou art;
I am where thou art;
I am because thou art.”

“Hail Mary, full of Grace
The Lord is with thee.
Blessed art thou among women and
blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary, Mother of God
Pray for us sinners now
and at the hour of our death.” Amen

“Lord, make me an instrument of your peace:
Where there is hatred, let me sow love,
Where there is injury, pardon
Where there is discord, harmony
Where there is doubt, faith,
Where there is falsehood, truth,
Where there is despair, hope,
Where there is darkness, light,
Where there is sadness, joy
O, Divine Master, let me seek not so much
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.”
–St. Francis of Assisi

Lord Jesus Christ, have mercy on me.
