The Abandonment to Divine Providence



Many of us are so busy that, sadly, we no longer have the luxury of reading, especially what is most important to us in our lives in Christ within Holy Mother the Church. Such vast treasures await us! ... and yet we cannot acquire them. Now you can. Are you driving to work? Make a CD of this audio book, and as you linger in traffic, listen to this classic in the treasury of the Church that is placed within the greatest spiritual writings of Her Saints, together with The Imitation of Christ, as the most popular and widely read works beside Sacred Scripture itself. Here you will the find the instruction that had formed the spiritual lives of countless Saints — and which will bring you to the depths of the Heart of Christ, the love of God ... given you each moment in the most ordinary duties, in the most unremarkable chores, through which God comes to you every moment of every day. You will find the gift God gives you unceasingly: Himself in the Sacrament of the Moment.
