Product Description

Abandonment to Divine Providence

by Fr. Jean-Pierre de Caussade
118 pp. paperback

 Fr. de Caussade’s Abandonment to Divine Providence is a book for all those who, in the words of St. Benedict, “truly seek God”. Fr. de Caussade’s spiritual teaching was derived from two extremely pure sources, St. Francis de Sales and St. John of the Cross. Another source of influence on de Caussade were his penitents, the Nuns of the Visitation. Fr. de Caussade effectively synthesizes both Salesian and Carmelite traditions in this book, which comprises his letters and dialogues on prayer. Fr. de Caussade refers to the Salesian teaching of self-abandonment and simplicity and the Carmelite emphasis on grace as a dynamic force that enlightens and cleanses the soul. When speaking of death to self, he refers to “abandonment”, “trust”, and “acquiescence”. He impresses upon the reader that abandonment may be taught and practiced by repeated acts. It is the duty of every Christian to acquire this virtue.

  1. Wonderful Book!

    Posted by Cathy on 22nd Feb 2017

    This book reminds us, in a beautiful way, that God is in control of everything that happens to us. It's especially comforting with the anxiety over all that is happening in our world today. I like to keep a couple of copies on hand to give to give to friends who are going through an illness or other hard time. This is my favorite book!
