You would not willingly call on us to suffer.
You say all things work together for our good
if we are faithful to You.
Therefore, if You ordain it:
through disappointment and poverty,
sickness and pain,
even shame and contempt and calumny,
You will support us with the consolation of Your Grace
and compensate us for any temporal suffering
by the possession of that peace
which the world can neither give nor take away.
