Life in God's Now: The Sacrament of the Present Moment : Jean Pierre De Caussade's Self-abandonment to Divine Providence for Everyone Paperback
Illustrated by Elizabeth Ruth Obbard
Jean Pierre de Caussade, the author of the classic which came to be known as Self-Abandonment to Divine Providence, was known as a good preacher.
Between 1731 and 1749 he was directing a retreat house in Nancy.
Notes were taken of his conferences but they were not published in book form for a wider readership until 1860, more than a hundred years later.
They were eventually edited and published by Henri Ramiere who gave it its title.
In his teaching de Caussade hones in upon the 'littleness' and 'ordinariness' of the daily routine in which God must be found.
God is NOW and God is HERE, otherewise God is NOWHERE.
If God is not found in the here and now, we will not find him in musings about the future or futile regrets over the past.
