Your Weekly Anchor
First Published 10/3/2022

Moment of Hope
Each week the Pastoral Care Deparment brings you a Moment of Hope - a brief prayer or poem to help give you peace, encouragement, and hope. Click here to listen to this week's Moment of Hope. 

There are a few holidays this week. October 4 is the Feast of St Francis of Assisi and the Hindu Holiday of Dussehra. October 5 is Yom Kippur, a Jewish holiday. October 8 is Mawlid, observing the birthday of the Islamic prophet Muhammad. 

Prayer of Saint 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.
