Dona Nobis Pacem


To see more Peace Globes, go to MiMi Writes, the Dona Nobis Pacem center.


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;

St. Francis of Assisi

Words...If you get the right ones, in the right order, you can nudge the world a little." Tom Stoppard

I love the prayer of St Francis!

Julie said...

Very good Jamie. St. Francis had a good thought there didn't he?

Turn from evil and do good; seek peace and pursue it. Ps. 34:14

I'll give you one more Peace Around the World - it's in Czech:

Have a peaceful day and let love rule! :o)

Wishing you, me, all of us, peace.

Julia Smith said...

I'm in a Saint Francis frame of mind, too, today. I've always taken those words to heart, ever since I was a child. It's definitely possible to spread little ripples of peace and joy every day.

A wonderful piece by Mark Twain - I'd never read it before. Thanks for posting it. Peace to you on this hopeful day.

We CAN have peace... with LOVE.

Absolutely beautiful....the video and the prayer brought tears to my eyes.

I went back and added Mr. Linky to my post. It is my first time to use this option.

But, I do so want to share and spread the links to everyone that is taking part in this glorious day for world peace!!

Linda said...

I saw this quote yesterday and thought it was very appropriate and perfect for a Peace Globe - glad to see that you thought so, too!

Peace to you and yours not just today but for always!

Lee said...

The prayer of St. Francis continues:
...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...


If the world could only adopt this prayer as the directions for a lasting peace, we would be so much closer to a peaceful reality.

Travis said...

People want peace. No rational mind wants to suffer, or inflict suffering on others.

Peace to you and yours on this Blog Blast Day!
