Abandonment to Divine Providence

$13.00
For more than 250 years, this simple classic of inspiration has guided readers of all faiths to the open-hearted acceptance of God's will that is the sure path to serenity, happiness, and spiritual peace.

"A spiritual classic of the first order... a book for all those who truly seek God." --Dom David Knowles

"Father de Caussade has a wonderful way of encouraging the doubtful, of nurturing the personal surrender that is so much a part of the development of faith. The book is a mystery of its own -- and is definitely not for Christians only." --Rabbi Joshua Chasan

"Abandonment to Divine Providence is a classic perhaps more necessary now than ever before. It's a little book that rightly rejects the spirituality of fear and trembling (and the modern preoccupation with dreary self-absorption) in favor of an abiding trust in God's active benevolence. This is a work one reads again and again, always with gratitude and astonishment." --Donald Spoto, Author of Blue Angel and The Dark Side of Genius

Self Abandonment to Divine Providence

$28.95
"I wish to show all that they may lay claim, not to the same distinct favors, but to the same love, the same self-abandonment, the same God . . . and to eminent sanctity. Let us not distress or refuse anyone, or drive any away from eminent perfection." --Fr. De Caussade Written to help those who despair of ever becoming holy, Father De Caussade elucidates in Self-Abandonment to Divine Providence how surrendering our will to God is the key to attaining peace and holiness in this life, and that it is readily available to all people-from beginners to those well advanced in the spiritual life. Father De Caussade's teachings were deeply influenced by St. Francis de Sales, St. John of the Cross, and the Sisters of the Visitation founded by St. Jane Frances de Chantal. These influences are apparent in his explanation that the perfection God expects from us consists mainly in our purifying the innumerable little actions that occur in the course of every day; in our heroic attention to every detail in our lives and humble acceptance of the lot God has chosen for us. This edition of Self Abandonment to Divine Providence includes over 150 letters from Father De Caussade to his spiritual children on the practice of self abandonment. These exchanges provide many profound insights and practical tips for applying the timeless lessons found in this classic guide to achieving holiness.
