Litany of Trust

The Litany of Trust

Just before Advent this year I was introduced to a beautiful and much needed prayer written by Sister Faustina Maria Pia of the Sister of Life named the Litany of Trust. I want to share just a few lines with you here:

  • From anxiety about the future. Deliver me, Jesus.

  • From resentment or excessive preoccupation with the past. Deliver me, Jesus. 

  • From restless self-seeking in the present moment. Deliver me, Jesus.

  • From disbelief in Your love and presence. Deliver me, Jesus.

  • From the fear of being asked to give more than I have. Deliver me, Jesus.

I encourage you to download the entire prayer and pray it with your family.

As we continue to prepare our minds and hearts for the coming of Christ on Christmas morning, let us continue to surrender all things to His most Holy will.
