O Divine Master, grant that I may not
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.
St. Frances of Assisi
May He comfort and sustain you
When things perplex your mind,
May He be your inspiration
Your lofty goals to find.
May He be with you in spirit
And help your burdens bear,
May He ever find you worthy
Of His tender love and care.
