8 Contributions Christians can Make to the World (According to Saint Francis of Assisi)

The main characteristic that distinguishes a Christian from a person of a different religious denomination is true love. This consists in feeling deeply loved by God, and loving Him in return, above all things. From this conception of life derives other characteristics such as forgiveness, hope, faith, truth, etc. Saint Francis of Assisi, in his “Simple Prayer” helps us reflect on the great blessing we have of believing in God, and in the contribution we can make to the world enlightening the darkness with the true light of Jesus Christ.

The prayer of Saint Francis of Assisi shows the 8 contributions that a Christian can make to the world when he lives his faith coherently and lives an authentic life:

1. “Where there is hatred, let me sow love.”

“Love your enemies, and pray for those who persecute you.” (Mt 5:44).

Peace

In the midst of war, interior solitude, depression, and financial problems, love is the light that dissipates darkness and brings peace and stability. But, who can bring love to our lives? Only Jesus Christ. Only in Christ can we fully love. The Christian that is united to Him has the ability to communicate that love because “everyone who loves is begotten by God and knows God” (1 Jn 4:7). The next time you perceive hate, do not forget to bring the love of God, that way He Himself will be the one intervening to dissipate the darkness of evil.
