"The easiest way to keep your peace of heart is to accept everything as coming directly from the hand of the God who loves you..."

To Saint Paul of the Cross

O glorious Saint Paul of the Cross, who, by meditating on the passion of Jesus Christ, didst attain to so high a degree of holiness on earth and of happiness in heaven, and by preaching the same passion, didst offer anew to the world the most certain cure for all its ills, obtain for us the grace to keep it ever deeply engraved in our hearts, that so we may be able to reap the same fruits both in time and in eternity. Amen.

Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory be.

Indulgence of 300 days; plenary indulgence on the usual conditions, once a month, for the daily recitation of this prayer in a spirit of devotion.
