Welcome to my new home for MachoGeek, for those of you who came via  I’ve decided to put all my thoughts, ideas and life lessons here at Webshoo.  Should be an interesting mix of blog posts, since Webshoo is so eclectic, fresh, opinionated, experimental and a life sharing community.

Anyway, we’ll see how this works out.  It’s Good Friday and as part of our family prayers today, we were listening to Saint Francis’ Prayer by Angelina.  Interesting background about this song or prayer, is there is no evidence that Saint Francis of Assisi actually wrote it.  But that doesn’t really matter, if someone wrote it about Saint Francis or for him, it certainly captures the essence of how St Francis tried to live his life.


Lord, make me an instrument

of Your peace.

Where there is hatred,

let me sow love

Where there is injury,


And where there is doubting

let me bring Your faith.

And Lord, make me an instrument

of Your peace.

Where there is despairing,

let me bring Your hope.

Where there is darkness,

Your light.

And where there is sadness,

let me bring Your joy.

Oh Divine Master,

grant that I might see,

not so much to be consoled

as to console.

To be understood

as to understand

Not so much to be loved

as to love another.

For it is in giving

that we now recieve

it is in pardoning

that we are now pardoned

and it is in dying

that we

are now born again

And Lord, make me an instrument

of Your peace.

Where there is hatred

let me bring Your love
