Lord, make me an instrument of your love.
Where the darkness of loneliness reigns
let me bring the light of friendship.
Where the darkness of bitterness reigns
let me bring the light of forgiveness.
Where the darkness of hurt reigns
let me bring the light of healing.
Where the darkness of discord reigns
let me bring the light of harmony.
Where the darkness of sadness reigns
let me bring the light of joy.
Where the darkness of doubt reigns
let me bring the light of faith.
Where the darkness of despair reigns
let me bring the light of hope.
And where the darkness of hatred reigns
let me bring the light of love. Amen.

We need the light of Jesus now more than ever. Fortunately the lamp Jesus lit continues to burn, a glowing goodness that illuminates the world. The light of Jesus did not come to judge us, but to save us, to show us how to live, to show us the way to the Father’s Kingdom.
Each of us can be sources of light to a darkened world. Indeed each of us is called to that task
