5: We started our day with Mass at the tomb of St. Francis. The choir sang the "Peace Prayer" as an opening song and it was a truly spiritual experience for each of us. -Sr. Kathleen Mary | Having the opportunity to sing in such a holy space only enhanced the reverent experience. -Emma Gambaro '13

6: 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. 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
