Translations:The Spirit of Selflessness/3/en
The life of Saint Francis demonstrated the spirit of selflessness. In his prayer “Lord, make me an instrument of thy peace,” Saint Francis desired to convey the comforting aspects of the Holy Spirit, realizing that his God Self and not his lower self was the source of that peace. He knew that by letting God’s peace flow through him like the wind rustling in the trees, he would become one with the Spirit, hence one with all life that proceedeth therefrom. Because his prayer to the Holy Spirit was utterly selfless, it left an indelible imprint upon the consciousness of mankind and elemental life.
