Confiding Abandonment

"Let us also desire only the accomplishment of the Will of God in ourselves and in others; in our own affairs and in those of the Church; in our works of zeal and in all that we have at heart. Let us hope with confidence to obtain by our fidelity in abandonment a mercy like that which St Gertrude obtained from the Heart of Jesus - viz., that He Himself may deign to repair all that has been wanting in us in this respect, and accept all our past actions as if they had been performed only to accomplish His desires; and all our past sufferings as if they had been accepted with perfect resignation." From Love, Peace and Joy: Devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus According to St Gertrude by Fr André Prévot
