Fr. Joseph Mary's Homily on EWTN

Here, as I promised, is Fr. Joseph Mary's homily from this morning's Mass on EWTN.

A couple of times, Fr. Joseph said "Pray for priests" when he meant to say, "Pray for peace". I really believe that The Holy Spirit was giving us a message through Fr. Joseph!

Prayer For Peace

Since His Holiness, Pope Benedict XVI, is in Assisi today, praying for peace, and has asked us to do the same, I'm going to be just a little bit lazy, and let St. Francis of Assisi write the most important part of this post. :)

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,
Where there is sadness, joy.
O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much
seek to be consoled as to console,
not so much to be understood as to understand,
not so much to be loved, as to love;
for it is in giving that we receive,
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned,
it is in dying that we awake to eternal life.
