Catholic Prayer: Act of Abandonment

Description:

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.

Prayer:

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.

AMEN.
