Abandon yourself to God

By Lora Goulet

Abandonment to Divine Providence (Tan Classics TC2211) Jean Pierre de Caussade - Paperback

Contemporary trends bombard us relentlessly. We are encouraged to demand unrealistic outcomes from painstaking plans. This often leads to frustration. Failure, by the world's standards, is the most likely result.

Abandonment to Divine Providence offers the reader a clear view of the supernatural rewards of complete surrender to the perfect and holy will of God. Fr. Jean-Pierre de Caussade's classic work presents us with the option to free ourselves of the burden to acquire wealth, popularity and status.

Quietly living within God's will fills our every day with the joys of holy simplicity. We are strengthened to bear our trials with constancy and hope.

This is an excellent book for a spiritual journal.

  1. I purchased this book about 10 years ago, and it has been a gem ever since. I have read it at least 3 times and have passed it on to others; I never seem to tire of Fr. de Caussade's message, and there is always something new to be learned, depending upon where I am in my personal spiritual journey. Thanks for the reminder of such a treasure we have in the way to abandoning ourselves totally to God's Providence.
