Take a Moment for a Prayer

from St. Francis of Assisi

There is an old, 1973 "historical documentary" that does certain justice to Francis of Assisi. If you watch it some evening, it will remind you to take time to smell the roses. It depicts his early years as the son of a rich merchant and how he made his transformation, renouncing material possessions and comforts, to live among and serve the poor, much like Mother Teresa in the last century. The video even depicts his special love for birds and how The Lord used birds and the breath-taking beauty of nature to lift the young Franchesco up to his calling. The poorly chosen title: Brother Sun and Sister Moon, makes the video sounds like it is part of The New Age Cult. But such is not the case. Unlike watching junk, that wastes your time and/or corrupts your soul, this historical documentary will lift you up! This man left a life of comfort to seek a spiritual union with God by living close to nature, serving the needy. He was especially fond of birds. Dr. Shelton unfairly ridiculed Francsis of Assisi for "talking to the birds" in one of his Hygienic Reviews. In the same sentence, Shelton also ridiculed F.D.R. and Abraham Lincoln. This saddened me. And such unbalanced rantings were probably why the former A.N.H.S. is now dumping out their Reviews and refusing to even sell them to Health Seekers! Lord,

Make me an instrument of Your peace.

Where there is hatred, let me sow love.

Where there is injury, let me sow pardon.

Where there is doubt, let me sow faith.

Where there is despair, let me sow hope.

Where there is darkness, let me sow light.

And where there is sadness, let me sow 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.
