St Francis of Assisi

Post by Stardust on 26/5/2017, 23:30

Feb 13, 2008

The Canticle of Creation - Saint Francis of Assisi (Feast, October 4)
There are many, slightly differently worded versions, but I prefer this one.

O Most High, all-powerful, good Lord God,
to you belong praise, glory, honour and all blessing.

For all your creation and especially for our Brother Sun,
who brings us the day and the light. He is strong and shines magnificently.
O Lord, we think of you when we look at him.

For Sister Moon and for the stars
which you have set shining and lovely in the heavens.

For our Brothers Wind and Air and every kind of weather
by which you, Lord, uphold life in all your creatures.

For Sister Water,
who is very useful to us, and humble,
precious and pure.

For Brother Fire,
through whom you give us light in the darkness:
he is bright and lively and strong.

For Sister Earth, our Mother,
who nourishes us and sustains us,
bringing forth fruits and vegetables of many kinds
and flowers of many colours.

For those who forgive for love of you,
and for those who bear sickness and weakness
in peace and patience - you will grant them a crown.

For our Sister Death,
whom we must all face.

I praise and bless you, Lord,
I give thanks to you and I will serve you in all humility.

The Prayer of St Francis of Assisi :

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. Amen

"The simple prayer of St. Francis of Assisi provides for us a mold in which to cast our own life's conduct and character. It provides a blueprint upon which to pattern our living in our thoughts, speech and actions within our day to day relationships with our fellow beings and with all life around us. Therefore, the prayer of St. Francis is a precious document for us, an indispensable, invaluable frame of reference by which to judge our own lives, and referring to which we can do the necessary to bring about the needed alterations and modifications for the upliftment and purification of our own daily life."

- Sri Swami Chidananda

I know I posted the second one there because I've always loved St Francis of Assisi and his prayer, but I have no recollection of posting the one above that (The Canticle of Creation).
