Our Holy Father Pope Francis Has Landed!

Pope Francis

In communion with our Holy Father, Pope Francis, as he arrives here in the archdiocesan Church of Washington, we offer up our thanks to God and in a special way we pray:

+ 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;
it is in dying that we are born again to eternal life. Amen.

– prayer attributed to Saint Francis of Assisi
