St. Francis of Assisi

St Francis of Assisi 

In remembrance of my father, Gerald Francis Bovell, on this, his birthday

October 27, 1925 – April 28, 2008




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.


Oh 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 into eternal life.
