Such A Tragedy

The entire country, and I suspect beyond as well, mourn with the residents of Newtown, CT.  The tragic events of Friday can't but help break our heart.

Ree Drummond, also known as The Pioneer Woman, has a beautiful post today.  While she has been mourning the loss of her grandmother, she reflected today on those in Connecticut.  She quoted these lovely words, which are worth repeating:

Prayer of St. Francis

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;
and 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.

Hold your loved ones close, my friend.
