Colombiere On Confidence In God

Men may deprive me of worldly goods and of honors; sickness may take from me my strength and the means of serving Thee; I may even lose Thy grace by sin: but my trust shall never leave me; I will preserve it to the last moment of my life, and the powers of hell shall seek in vain to wrest it from me. "In peace in the self -same I will sleep and I will rest." 
Link (here) to the full text of the prayer by Saint Claude de la Colombiere, S.J.

Oh, what a treasure this prayer is, Joe. Many thanks. I am reading St. Margaret Mary's letters, btw.
