Blessed Charles de Foucauld
Celebrating Mass in Hermitage of Charles de Foucauld, Assekrem

Blessed Charles de Foucauld

On December 1st the Church remembers Blessed Charles de Foucauld, a passionate seeker of the Absolute, beatified in 2005.

Prayer of abandonment.


Walking in the footsteps of Charles de Foucauld

I abandon myself into your hands; do with me what you will.
Whatever you may do, I thank you:
I am ready for all, I accept all.
Let only your will be done in me, and in all your creatures.
I wish no more than this, O Lord.


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

(Charles de Foucauld)
