聖方濟的禱告

主啊!
求你讓我成為你和平的器具
在有仇恨的地方,撒下愛的種子;
在有懷疑之處,使人篤信不移;
絕望中,帶來希望;
黑暗裏,透露曙光;
在那憂傷之地,散發喜悅

主啊!
求你讓我能不求別人的安慰,而能安慰別人;
不求別人的了解,而能了解別人;
不求別人的愛,而能愛人;
在施予中,我們有所收穫;
赦免別人的同時,我們也得到赦免;
當我們死的時候,要活在那永遠的世界

【陳真按:林義雄把這禱告詞,刻於林宅墓園後方;墓碑前方則刻著一段佛經:「我應如日,普照一切,不求恩報。」列寧說,「世上如果有十個聖方濟,就不會有共產主義了。」很難想像世上曾有這樣善良的人,彷彿光芒及於一切生靈,對弱小生命特別憐憫,因此有人說他是「動物的守護者」。】

Make Me an Instrument of Your Peace-St. Francis of Assisi

Lord, make me an instrument of Your peace.
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
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 are pardoned;
It is in pardoning that we are pardoned;
It is in dying that we are born again to eternal life.
