St Francis 1182-1226

Make me a channel of your peace.
Where there is hatred, let me bring your love;
where there is injury, your pardon, Lord;
and where there's doubt, true faith in you:

O Master, grant that I may never seek
so much to be consoled as to console;
to be understood as to understand;
to be loved, as to love with all my soul.

Make me a channel of your peace.
Where there's despair in life, let me bring hope;
where there is darkness, let me bring your light;
and where there's sadness, bring your joy:

O Master, grant that I may never seek
so much to be consoled as to console;
to be understood as to understand;
to be loved, as to love with all my soul.

Make me a channel of your peace;
for when we give we will ourselves receive.
It is in pardoning that we are pardoned
and in dying that we're born to eternal life.

The Conversation

"I've been privileged to be around a couple of people who were dying. Its incredible the clarity at the end."

Benedict Cumberbatch is in danger of becoming Britain's greatest leading man after nailing Sherlock and his performances in Frankenstein. He talks to Kate Muir about fame, death and his new film.
