INSTRUMENTS OF CHRIST: Reflections on The Peace Prayer of Saint Francis of Assisi

Through one of the world’s most beloved and inspirational prayers, the Peace Prayer, Franciscan priest Albert Haase challenges us to look beyond ourselves and towards God, and all of humanity. In the compact but compelling Instruments of Christ: Reflections on the Peace Prayer of Saint Francis of Assisi, Haase reflects on each phrase of the Peace Prayer, offering us ideas about what it means to truly be a peacemaker. He explores six seeds he says we need to sow if Easter Peace is to blossom in this world – love, forgiveness, faith, hope, light and joy. Stories from the author’s life as well as those of friends punctuate each reflection and encourage us to plant these seeds of virtue and send forth the eternal message that we all desire and need peace in our daily lives.
