Lord, make me an instrument of your peace. where there is hatred let me sow love // may your love cause us to open up, cause us to open up our hearts. may your light cause us to shine so bright, that we bring hope into the dark.
St. Francis de Sales. Is it any wonder he was called the Saint Maker? He was also the inspiration of St. John Bosco another saintmaker who was able through God's grace to take boys from the street with no faith foundation and lead them to such holiness that many of them levitated during mass. He founded the Salestians an order based on the teachings of St. Francis de Sales. St. John Bosco was the teacher of St. Dominic Savio.
Mother Teresa was a great admirer of St. Francis of Assisi. Her Sisters of Charity recite the peace prayer of St. Francis every morning during thanksgiving after Communion and many of the vows and emphasis of her ministry are similar. St. Francis emphasised poverty, chastity, obedience and submission to Christ. He also devoted much of his own life to service of the poor, especially lepers in the area where he lived. #2014HeroesProject www.ShannonWalbran.com
