PRAYER: An Act of Abandonment by Francis de Sales

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; not 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.
