habemus papam

prayer of saint francis of assisi

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.

i had a dream that i was reading this prayer and then i woke up to the news that we have a new pope, argentina’s jorge mario bergoglio, and that he took the name pope francis. i felt blessed upon learning this coincidence that i kinda cried.

i’m a creep. but please still read my blog, haha.
