Franciscan Prayers


Francis prayed this prayer before the crucifix in the little church of San Damiano in 1205/6, in the early days of his conversion.

All highest Glorious God,
Cast your light into the darkness of my heart.
Give me right faith, firm hope, perfect charity and profound humility:
With wisdom and perception, O Lord,
So that I may do what is truly,your holy will. Amen
