"The will of God has nothing but sweetness, grace, and treasures for the surrendered soul"

This inspirational classic was compiled more than a century after the death of its author, the French Jesuit, Jean-Pierre de Caussade. Gathered from the notes, discussions, and letters that he left behind, these reflections focus on accepting the will of God with an open heart, and learning to slow down and live life in the "sacrament of the present moment.”

"I count myself blessed that, at an important juncture in my life, a wise elder introduced me to the writings of Caussade. From them I gained not only the guidance I needed to traverse a difficult terrain, but also a permanent element in my outlook on life: an appreciation of the operation of God’s providence and my need to be receptive of that providence despite the lack of full understanding and the pressure of contrary desires.”

--Michael Casey, O.C.S.O. from the Introduction
