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. 


--St. Francis de Sales
