Jean Pierre de Caussade (1675-1751) was a French Jesuit priest, college rector, itinerant preacher, missionary and writer. 

In the book Abandonment to Divine Providence (published in 1851), he teaches the believer to submit to God’s will and to enjoy his loving presence. Abandonment is a term used by mystic writers to signify the first stage of the union of the soul with the divine, by conforming to God's will. 

Abandoning an outcome to God is to follow the path of peace. Originally written as letters for the direction of Nuns, the book is an excellent guide for Christians yearning to attain resignation and peace.

Excellent reminder of grace and love

One needs to overlook ancient catholic practices and traditions to glean the heart of the love of God and consider changes in understanding suffering. The main message of “thy will be done” is supreme but there are many conjectures about reasons for suffering unnecessary to nuns in the past.

Amazing book, hard to understand narrator

One of the greatest spiritual classics of all times, but the narrator is very hard to understand. I have waited so long to get an audio copy of the full book (with letters) but almost had to return it because of the narration. Any other book and I definitely would have retuned it, but this one is worth the frustration. I would LOVE to hear it read by someone like James Patrick Cronin.
