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;

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.

Peace Prayer of St. Francis of Assisi
Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For everything in the world—-the cravings of sinful man, the lust of his eyes and the boasting of what he has and does—-comes not from the Father but from the world. The world and its desires pass away, but the man who does the will of God lives forever.
1 John 2:15-17 (NIV)

Someone took a photo of a priest during the act of consecration. To his great surprise, upon developing the film, the image of the holy family appeared.

Because I doubted that this statement was genuine, I sent the photos to a place in Italy in the neighbourhood of Rome so that a person endowed with special graces could examine them. The response I received was that the image was indeed authentic.

To the question from where the picture was obtained, Jesus answered, “It is not important from where and from whom the picture originates. No one should take credit for that. With this picture, I want to bring aid to the world…”

He stresses” “It is the family of Nazareth. It is very precious, so as to take it into the families; it brings My blessings. With it come faith, prayer, and My presence. I, Myself, come with it into the home…” This picture can, therefore, truly be considered a gift from heaven.

Fr. Christian Michel, SAC writes:

May this message of Jesus penetrate your soul and enlighten your mind and heart of his his great love, mercy and forgiveness. May it inspire you to respond to his bidding to know Him, love Him and serve Him in this world to merit Heaven.
