#1: Make Me A Channel Of Your Peace by St Francis of Assisi

Make me a channel of your peace

Where there is hatred let me bring your love

Where there is injury, your pardon Lord

And where there’s doubt, true faith in You.

Make me a channel of your peace

Where there’s despair in life let me bring hope

Where there is darkness, only light

And where there’s sadness only joy.

O Master grant that I may never seek

So much to be consoled as to console

To be understood as to understand

To be loved as to love with all my soul.

Make me a channel of your peace

It is in pardoning that we are pardoned

It is in giving to all men that we receive

And in dying that we are born to eternal life.

#2: From Robert Bloomfield

I love to mark the floweret’s eye

To rest where pebbles form my bed

Where shapes and colours scattered lie

In varying millions round my head

The soul rejoices when alone

And feels her glorious empire free

Sees God in every shining stone

And revels in variety

#3: The Small Beautitudes by The Small Beautitudes

Blessed are those who can laugh at themselves;

they will have no end of fun.

Blessed are those who can tell a mountain from a molehill;

they will be saved a lot of bother.

Blessed are those who know how to relax

without looking for excuses;

they are on their way to becoming wise.

Blessed are those who are sane enough

not to take themselves too seriously;

they will be valued most by those about them.

Happy are you if you can take small things seriously

and face serious things calmly;

you will go far in life.

Happy are you if you can appreciate a smile and forget a frown;

you will walk on the sunny side of the street.

Happy are you if you can be kind in

understanding the attitudes of others

even when the signs are unfavourable;

you may be taken for a fool, but this is the price of charity.

Blessed are those who think before acting and pray before thinking;

they will avoid many blunders.

Happy are you if you know how to hold your tongue and smile,

even when people interrupt and contradict you or tread on your toes;

the Gospel has begun to seep into your heart.
