Instruments of Christ: Reflections on the Peace Prayer of Saint Francis of Assisi
published by Franciscan Media | Trade Paperback | 81 pages
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 toward God, and henceforth all of humanity. In this compact but compelling book Haase reflects on each phrase of the Peace Prayer, offering us ideas about what it means to truly be a peacemaker and “Little Christ.” Haase explores six seeds he says we need to sow if Easter Peace is to blossom in this worldlove, 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.
