Item Description...
Overview
"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

More About Jean-Pierre De Caussade, Michael Casey, Sarah Hurst, Jimmy Adams, Ronnie Casson, Gershon Levi & Sylvia Yount

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Jean Pierre de Caussade (1675-1751) was a French Jesuit priest and writer known for his work Abandonment to Divine Providence (also translated as The Sacrament of the Present Moment) and his posthumously-published letters of instruction to the Nuns of the Visitation at Nancy, where he was spiritual director from 1733-1740, although he continued to write the sisters after leaving Nancy. While he is best known for his work with the sisters, he also spent years as preacher in southern and central France, as a college rector (at Perpignan and at Albi), and as the director of theological students at the Jesuit house in Toulouse. Caussade is remembered for, among other things, his belief that the present moment is a sacrament from God and that Abandonment to it and its needs is a holy state - a belief which, at first glance, would appear to be heretical relative to Catholic dogma. In fact, because of this fear (especially with the Church's condemnation of the Quietist movement), Caussade's instructions to the sisters were kept unpublished until 1861, and even then they were edited (by fellow Jesuit Henri Ramiere) to protect them from charges of Quietism. A more authoritative version of these notes was published only in 1966. It is clear in his writings that he is aware of the Quietists and that he rejects their perspective. Writers such as Alan Watts have found in Caussade an Occidental, Christian-theological analogue to the Eastern religion of Mahayana Buddhism, particularly Zen Buddhism.

How to become a saint over the week-end  Feb 19, 2009
This is the translation that I would give to a friend. It is written in Catholic, but if that is not a deal breaker, it translates into other traditions rather easily.
It is also popular among some 12 step groups.
