O God, Who taught blessed Hedwig
to renounce the vanity of this world,
that, with her whole heart,
she might follow the humble way of Your cross:
grant that, through her merits and example,
we may learn to trample underfoot
the perishable delights of this world
and by clinging to Your cross
overcome whatsoever may be opposed to us.
Who lives and reigns with You,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
world without end.
