Bible VersePrayer of St. 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. 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

PoemThe Oak Tree by Johnny Ray Ryder, Jr.
“A mighty wind blew night and day. It stole the oak tree's leaves away.
Then snapped its boughs and pulled its bark until the oak was tired and stark.
But still, the oak tree held its ground while other trees fell all around.
The weary wind gave up and spoke. “How can you still be standing Oak?”
The oak tree said, “I know that you can break each branch of mine in two,
Carry every leaf away, shake my limbs, and make me sway,
But I have roots stretched in the earth growing stronger since my birth.
You'll never touch them, for you see, they are the deepest part of me.
Until today, I wasn't sure of just how much I could endure,
But now I've found, with thanks to you I'm stronger than I ever knew.”
