Give them love and hope

Often I heard elderly individuals informing me that they felt been "abandoned" by their families. Let us continue to remember our elderly parents, give them hope and love. A prayer to share from Brother Charles deFoucauld of Jesus.

The Prayer of Abandonment of Brother Charles deFoulcauld of Jesus


I abandon myself into Your hands;
do with me what You will.
Whatever You do I thank You.

I am ready for all, I accept all.
Let only Your will be done in me,
as in all Your creatures,
I ask no more than this, my Lord.

Into Your hands I commend my soul;
I offer it to You, O Lord,
with all the love of my heart,
for I love You, my God, and so need to give myself,
to surrender myself into Your hands,
without reserve and with total confidence,
for You are my Father.
