Product Description
Fr. Caussade's Self Abandonment to Divine Providence is a book for all those who, in the words of St. Benedict, "Truly seek God". Fr. 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 Caussade were his penitents, the Nuns of the Visitation. Fr. Caussade effectively synthesizes both Salesian and Carmelite traditions in this book, which is comprises his letters and dialogues on prayer. Fr. 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.

Self Abandonment to Divine Providence  Sep 18, 2009
A life-changing, amazing book that I read over and over. My copy is underlined and dog-eared. De Caussade has a mystical understanding of God that is thoroughly modern, yet timeless. I am not Catholic, nor do I attend a church . . . this book is food for the soul.
Jesuit spirituality at its finest  Jul 14, 2009
This book is a short read, but extremely profound. The author conveys the need for self-abandonment; that is, giving up all that we are, all that we have, our thoughts, goals, ambitions, desires, concerns etc. all to God. He shows how in so many aspects of our lives we hold back and tend to do things our way, and how in many situations we would do things differently. Yet the following quote from the first Chapter is one of the most beautiful statements I have ever read:

"Speculation must be laid aside, and everything arranged by God as regards actions and sufferings must be accepted with simplicity, for those things that happen at each moment by the divine command or permission are always the most holy, the best and the most divine for us."

Every situation we are in is what is most holy for us. Meditating on that is incredible. That means no matter ho awful a current situation is or how annoyed we are, that that is PRECISELY where God wants us and how he plans to make us grow in holiness. Thus we must accept with praise and gratitude on our lips all situations in which we find ourselves because, as is mentioned many times, everything happens under God's providence. NOTHING happens that God does not permit to happen and unfold according to his perfect plan. Do we have a better plan than God? Can we make ourselves more holy apart from God's wisdom? Absolutely not! This book is all about trusting in that wisdom, in all walks of life, at all times, so that at all moments we do everything with the praise and glory of God in mind as an ends. "To what end?" that must constantly be on our minds when engaging in any activity. If the answer is anything but God's glory, the activity is not worthy of us. This is the very heart of this wonderful book. Highly recommended.
Preyer, abandonment to God.  May 11, 2009
A preyer book in history of religieos life in monasteries, very good, but needs a reader of chiristian faith and convictions.
A wonderful book - but there is a better  Dec 21, 2007
I agree totally with what previous reviewers have said about this book. De Caussade's message is truly profound and life-changing. However a much clearer and simpler exposition of substantially the same message is contained in "The Gift of Oneself" by Fr. Joseph Schryvers - also available on this site.
This book changed my life forever!!  Jun 28, 2004
I cannot recommend this book highly enough! The author lived long ago and yet his Christ-centered words ring out beautifully for us modern mortals. I was so moved by his humble approach to God and his deep love and surrender to Christ. A profoundly spiritual and moving experience awaits the reader of this book!
