Saturday Synaxis

I know not, O my God, what may befall me today, but I am well convinced that nothing will happen which Thou hast not foreseen and ordained from eternity. I adore Thy eternal, unknowable designs; I submit to them for Thy love; I sacrifice myself in union with the sacrifice of Jesus Christ my divine Savior. I ask in His holy name for patience and persevering trust in the midst of my sufferings, and perfect conformity of my will to Thine in all things, past, present, and to come. Amen.

- Elizabeth of France, royal family member executed in 1794
