Saint Francis’s Prayer Before the Icon Crucifix of San Damiano

saint-francis-prayer-at-san-damiano

Most High,

Most glorious God,

Enlighten the darkness of my heart.

Grant me a right and true faith,

A certain hope, and

A perfect charity, feeling, and understanding

Of you,

So that I may be able to accomplish

Your holy and just commands.

Amen.

– Lucas G. Westman
