Salpointe Weekly Peek - March 25, 2022

Happy Friday, Lancers!
This week's "Peace Prayer of Saint Francis" was shared by Phillip Becker, Interim Director of Campus Ministry:
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. Amen. Our Lady of Mount Carmel. Pray for us.
