Prayer of St. Francis (4th Grade)

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.

Psalm 23 (4th Grade)

The Lord is my shepherd
there is nothing I shall want.
In meadows of green grass He let me lie,
To waters of repose He leads me;
There He revives my soul.

He guides me by paths of virtue
for the sake of His name.
Though I walk through the valley of darkness, I
feel no harm;
beside me Your rod and Your staff
are there to hearten me.

You prepare a table before me
in the sight of my foes;
You anoint my head with oil,
my cup brims over.

Surely goodness and kindness shall follow me, all
the days of my life;
and I shall live in the house of the Lord
