A Deeper Charity for All
Philadelphia, PA - In Pope Francis' recent visit to the United States, he encouraged all families to a deeper level of charity encouraging all to focus on Truth, Beauty and Goodness in our daily interactions with one another. We thank God for the Holy Father's wisdom and ask for the grace to move each day toward a greater level of charity for all. We ask our guardian angel's intercession for an increase of faith, hope and love so we might be more like Christ in our daily encounters with one another.
Saint Francis' expressed this longing for sanctity in his prayer "Canticle of the Sun".
Lord, make me a channel of thy peace,
that where there is hatred, I may bring love;
that where there is wrong, I may bring the spirit of forgiveness;
that where there is discord, I may bring harmony;
that where there is error, I may bring truth;
that where there is doubt, I may bring faith;
that where there is despair, I may bring hope;
that where there are shadows, I may bring light;
that where there is sadness, I may bring joy.
Lord, grant that I may seek rather to
comfort than to be comforted;
to understand, than to be understood;
to love, than to be loved.
For it is by self-forgetting that one finds.
It is by forgiving that one is forgiven.
It is by dying that one awakens to Eternal Life."
