"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.
