Feast of St. Francis of Assisi




Today is the feast of St. Francis of Assisi on the church calendar. Please join in praying these well known words...

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.

Concord Pastor,
Do you have any idea where these singers are? What church/country? So beautiful...

Their names are Lucy Rhodes and James Eager. I have no information on what church they are singing in but from the sound of their voices my guess is that it's in the UK.
