YOUR CROSS (ST FRANCIS DE SALES)

The everlasting God

has in His wisdom

foreseen from eternity the cross

that He now presents to you

as a gift from inmost Heart.

This cross He now sends you

He has considered

with His all-knowing eyes,

understood with His Divine mind,

tested with His wise justice,

warmed with loving arms

and weighed with His own hands

to see that it be not one inch too large

and not one ounce too heavy for you.

He has blessed it with His holy Name,

anointed it with His grace,

perfumed it with His consolation,

taken one last glance at you

and your courage,

and then sent it to you from heaven,

a special greeting from God to you,

an alms of allmerciful  love of God.
