I accept willingly this sickness [or trial]
which it has pleased You to lay upon me.
I confide all my pains to your Sacred Heart,
and beg You to unite them with Your bitter sufferings,
and thus perfect them by making them Your own.
Since I cannot render You the praise due to You
because of the multitude of my sorrows and afflictions,
I ask You to praise God
the Father for all I suffer,
with the same tribute of praise You offered Him
when Your agony on the Cross was at its height.
As You thanked Him with all the powers of Your soul
for all the sufferings and injustice
which He willed You should endure,
so, I pray You,
give Him thanks for my trials also.
Offer my sufferings,
physical and spiritual,
to Him together with Your most holy pains
to His eternal honour
