I recall my director when I was in a convent in my teens telling me that God would give me The Grace to deal with anything, but not necessarily The Grace to conquer my imagination about anything …and “ready to loose totally everything” can be seen as an appeal to the imagination to imagine having absolutely nothing. Rather “to loose everything” asks an acknowledgement that God will never ask of me more than I can give and Grace will always be with me and more than sufficient…hence under those terms I can ask myself, am I readly to “loose everything”.
