Catholic Prayer: Act of Abandonment


Prayer Categories (1)


Saint Francis de Sales wrote this prayer as an act of love for the will of God, especially regarding crosses He wills that we should carry.


O my God....I thank you and I praise you for accomplishing your holy and all-lovable will without any regard for mine. With my whole heart, in spite of my heart, do I receive this cross I feared so much!

It is the cross of Your choice, the cross of Your love. I venerate it; nor for anything in the world would I wish that it had not come, since You willed it.

I keep it with gratitude and with joy, as I do everything that comes from Your hand; and I shall strive to carry it without letting it drag, with all the respect and all the affection which Your works deserve.
