  • Franciscan Spirituality: An Invitation to Peacemaking From the Life of St. Francis | The Franciscan Friars, TOR
    The wolf indicated that it would accept these terms and offered the saint his paw as a sign of the pact I promise that the town will feed you every day I know that what you did you did out of hunger The town promised to do what the saint had bargained and the town adopted the wolf and fed him until the day he died REFLECTION Whether the wolf was real or whether he symbolized il lupo the murderer and thief the story points out the need for the ministry of reconciliation whether by prayer or activity Indeed Francis whole life was marked by peacemaking despite his youthful experiences of war He was a peacemaker amongst the factions of Assisi between sultans kings and bishops as well as wild animals The prayer of reconciliation most people associate with St Francis is make me an instrument of your peace Though this prayer can only be found in twentieth century sources and is therefore not an authentic prayer written by St Francis However it does express most poetically the spirit of Francis life and vision It is without a doubt A Franciscan Peace Prayer So the next time you pray this popular prayer keep in mind Francis invitation to be a reconciler in a world often torn by anger violence and despair CALL TO ACTION Focus on people s good points Tell all with whom you come into contact the good things you see in them Develop a positive approach toward life Compliment more than you criticize Build a climate of trust and support in all your relationships Cooperate with others instead of competing with them Use gentle loving respectful language dealing with others They won t hear your words if you re too busy dodging your sharp tongue Take a
