In my previous post, I noted that today is Rosh Hashanah and also the first day of Ramadan, and stated that it is not a special Christian holiday.
Carol, How could you forget that today is the feast day of that very special saint and peacemaker, Francis of Assisi?? This makes the convergence of holy days complete, n 'est-ce pas?
Here is the St. Francis prayer:
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
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,
It is in dying . . .that we are born to eternal life.
