OATH TAKEN DURING SPECIAL OCCASSSIONS:

-OATH TAKEN DURING INVESTITURE CEREMONY:
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;
And where thee 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 light

St. Francis of Assisi

(1182 – 1226)
