Today’s Classic Book Selection: Abandonment To Divine Providence

“Let go and let God.” This popular phrase captures the essence of Father Jean-Pierre de Caussade’s 18th century treatise on trust, Abandonment to Divine Providence.

Do you doubt? Do you suffer? Are you anxious about the trials of life?

Father de Caussade offers the one sure solution to any spiritual difficulty: abandon yourself entirely to God by embracing the duties of your station in life.

With wisdom and gentleness he teaches how to practice complete submission to the will of God in every situation, whether we are beginners or seasoned travelers on the way of perfection.

True abandonment, he explains, is a trusting, peaceful, and childlike surrender to the guidance of grace.

Editor’s note: This is one of the most subversive, countercultural works that the world has ever seen, which makes it perfect reading for serious, faithful Catholics.

To live out what this volume promotes is a tremendous exercise in humility, which is something that God is known to very much appreciate.

An added bonus is that such an approach totally confounds the prideful, Evil One, who has no real understanding of true humility and hence, no defense against such “unfair” tactics.

Definitely a win-win!
