Prayer of Saint Francis‏, Patron Saint of Autism


Lord, make me an instrument of your peace.
Where there is hatred, let me sow love.
Where there is injury, pardon.
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 receive.
It is in pardoning that we are pardoned,
and it is in dying that we are born to Eternal Life.
Amen.

*There actually is no patron saint for autism.  I nominate Saint Francis.  There is supposedly a patron saint of gardeners, taxi drivers and sexually transmitted disease (curiously,Saint Fiacre covers all 3 of these) , surely autism deserves one.
