PRAYER OF ST. FRANCIS

A blue iris for you!
Since the families of most of us are Christian and some of us consider ourselves to be Christian as well as Buddhist, Blue Iris Sangha has integrated elements of Christian practice into times when it was necessary to have a funeral service. The following version of the Prayer of St. Francis is especially suited for such occasions since it expresses so clearly elements of practice common to both Christian and Buddhist traditions.


Lord, make us instruments of your Peace.
Where there is hatred, let us sow love;
where there is injury, healing;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
and where there is sadness, joy.

Grant that we may not seek so much
to be comforted as to comfort,
to be understood as to understand,
to be loved as to love.

For it is in giving that we receive,
in forgiving that we are forgiven,
and in dying to our selfishness
that we are born into life eternal.

Remember your breath -- it's a matter of life and death.

With that said, the rolex replica uk is a bit more youthful and masculine looking, which probably means there is healthy market for it. Dietrich offers the fake rolex sale in a relatively conservative set of dial colors blue, black, and gray. The hour markers and hands are painted in white colored Super-LumiNova, which glows green in the dark. Equally interesting is the dial of the replica watches. The iconic "sausage on a stick" Gerald Genta hands have been modernized by Dietrich in a satisfying and original manner. They retain their classic replica watches sale but they possess a greater knife-life aggression. I even like how Dietrich designed the date window, though I think that the dial might look better without the date window display. While I admire the overall dial of the rolex replica sale I do think that it could be further refined to look a little bit more elegant.
