Ever wanted to be like someone else? Who? Would you change your name to theirs?

The new pope chose the name Francis, in honour of Francis of Assisi, a follower of Jesus who chose to reject possessions and love the poor, sick, the outcasts and those of other religions. Can you pray the prayer he first prayed?

‘Lord, make me a channel of your peace.
where there is hatred, may I bring love,
where there is wrong, the spirit of forgiveness,
where there is discord, harmony,
where there is error may I bring truth,
where there is doubt, faith,
where there is despair, hope,
where there are shadows, light,
where there is sadness, may I bring joy.’ In Jesus’ name. Amen.
