Here is a page on the Peace Prayer that St. Francis said. My kids added it to there daily journal binders. It has lift flaps to compare the opposites that St. Francis had said in the prayer.

Learning the opposites worked right in with my younger girls lessons, too!!
What’s the Peace Prayer?
The Peace Prayer
Lord, make me an instrument of Thy peace;
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
Where there is injury, pardon;
Where there is error, the truth;
Where there is doubt, the faith;
Where there is despair, hope;
Where there is darkness, light;
And where there is sadness, joy.
O Divine Master,Grant
that I may not so much seek
To be consoled, as to console;
To be understood, as to understand;
To be loved as to love.

For it is in giving that we receive;
It is in pardoning that we are pardoned;
And it is in dying that we are born to eternal life. Amen.

To make this notebooking page you will need:

Choose color or black and white
After you print out the pages, cut out the two flaps on the second page.

After they are cut out, they can be folded down and taped to first page. The “Where…” blocks can be cut into small flaps which are all connected on the left side at the long vertical flap.
Line up the folded edge with the left edge of the box on the first page. You can use glue to stick it down, but if you use tape be sure to also tape the top and bottom of the flaps so it doesn’t flip back.
Fold and tape/glue the ends of the St. Francis image over the ending of the prayer on the opposite side of the page.
That’s it!
The kids used a 3-hole punch to make holes so they could add this to their daily journal binder.
Have a blessed feast of St. Francis!


  1. What a wonderful idea! I am so glad to have found this on the Catholic Bloggers Network FB page. My 9 year old would love to do this with me! I actually listened to this prayer (in song) this morning on my Divine Office App. So beautiful. Happy Feast of St. Francis to you! I look forward to more Catholic ideas! God Bless,Cristina

  2. I'm very pleased to meet you, Cristina! I have always loved the peace prayer in song!! (3) My husband and I asked the cantor at our wedding (16 years ago) to sing it. She was just beautiful to listen to! God bless!

  3. Wow! My son is 18 years old and I used to make stuff for him to do. But nothing like this! You are amazing! (h)
