Lenten Reflections

Crucifixion of Jesus  - Lourdes, France

Father, I abandon myself into Your hands; do with me what You will. Whatever You do, I thank You; I am ready for all, I accept all. Let only Your will be done in me, and in all Your creatures - I wish no more that this O, Lord.

Into Your hands I commend my soul; I offer it to You with all the love of my heart, for I love You, Lord. And so I need to give myself, to surrender myself into Your hands, without reserve, and with boundless confidence, for You are my Father. Amen!
