Default The Cross

The Cross
by St. Francis De Sales

The everlasting God in his wisdom
Forseen from eternity the cross that
He now presents to you as a gift from His
Inmost Heart

This cross, He now sends to you, He has
Considered with His all-knowing eyes
Understood with His Divine mind
Tested with His wise Justice
Warmed with His 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 sent it to
You from heaven, a special greeting from
God to you, a gift from the all-merciful
Love of God
