Giving & Receiving
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. Amen”
Though hidden from the eyes of the world, we live a life of intercession and communion. We depend upon the Lord’s Providence to provide for all of our needs, so that we can be free to offer Him a continual sacrifice of praise and thanks, on behalf of mankind. Your generosity to us, whether in time, talent, or treasure, is a beautiful cooperation with God’s generosity. Daily we pray for all of our benefactors – both living and deceased.
