Sorry for the slack in posts the last few days. Saturday took all day and it took Sunday and Monday to recover. Tuesday is no excuse.
This next book is nothing new for the blog (if you happened to following us this long ago). Two years ago, I picked up this book as spiritual reading for Lent. I had a reading schedule and everything. I didn’t hold to it. I picked it up again the next Lent and didn’t finish it. Third time’s a charm, right? I picked it up again this year and finally finished it.
Abandonment to Divine Providence by Jean Pierre de Caussade took me three time because it kicks your prideful, selfish little behind. It doesn’t hold any punches with regard to how to live a saintly life. His principles are very simple but they require a deep and abiding faith. He says simply to be holy is to abandon yourself to the will of God.
This would be a great book if you are looking to go deeper in your spiritual life and willing to put in the work of humility. But check with your spiritual director first.
