Dona Nobis Pacem


It means "GIVE US PEACE"

Today is Blog Blast for Peace day all over the Internet. Bloggers everywhere are posting their personalized PEACE GLOBE. Go to Mimi Writes if you want a globe to participate in this exciting day.

While I'm not a religious person, I'm going to post the Peace Prayer attributed to St. Francis of Asissi. I learned it in school long ago and sang a musical adaptation of it when I was in the high school glee club. It is a wondrous prayer that expresses what we need here in the United States and in the world.
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;
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.

I think that's a great prayer. I've seen a lot of these posts around today. Seems a lot of people have a strange idea of what peace means. I like yours!
