Prayer of St. Francis

St. Francis of Assisi is the Patron Saint of The Nativity School. Each year on October 4th, the feast day of St. Francis, we honor his love of animals by hosting a Blessing of the Animals. Students are invited to bring their pets to school in the morning, and their pets receive a special blessing.  The Prayer of St. Francis:


Lord, make me an instrument of Thy 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.
