Spirituality enhances life. It boosts the shattered or the week soul. Spiritual guidance is the most effective means where one may benefit maximum of it in the journey of life. Timely spiritual guidance can heal one’s deepest problems and add value to human life. So it is unique and special. Recently in a nearby village a minor girl was allegedly raped. The Girl had a traumatic experience and she too was emotionally disturbed. It took her almost a long time to come out of this bad experience which was bothering her so much. This type of violence especially against the minors is one of the classic examples for the degradation of human life and its value.

Peace Prayer of St. Francis of Assisi

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace,
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
where there is injury, pardon;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
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.
