‘Yes, if one could only leave the hand of God to do its work, one would reach the most eminent perfection. All souls would reach it, for it is offered to all.’ These words of Jean-Pierre de Caussade (1675-1751) sum up his message of abandonment to God’s care in the simplest and most immediate experiences of life. Everything can be abandoned and entrusted, and everything gained, by the person who meets the love of God with an answering child-like trust and surrender. The simplicity and wholeness of de Caussade’s hidden way of love are revealed in his own words.
