Our Morning Offering – 23 August – Give to Me or Take from Me

Our Morning Offering – 23 August – Friday of the 20th week in Ordinary Time, Year C

Give to Me or Take from Me
By Blaise Pascal (1623-1662)

O Lord,
let me not henceforth desire health or life,
except to spend them for You
and with You.
You alone know what is good for me,
do, therefore, what seems best.
Give to me or take from me,
conform my will to Yours
and grant that,
with humble and perfect submission
and in holy confidence,
I may receive the orders
of Your eternal providence
and may equally adore,
all that comes to me from You,
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
