Your customer service is outstanding. Everything was securely packaged and arrived in perfect condition.

Thank you, thank you, thank you each and every Sister for doing such a perfect job and for putting up with us throughout this whole process.
While rersearching this project, every time I looked elsewhere, I always seemed to be guided back to the Sisters of Carmel, and now I know why It was such a pleasure to receive it.
Everything was packaged and presented with such care and finesse. The crucifix was crafted with such intricate and beautiful details that it does not do justice to look at it through the Internet.

While all of these were within the Christian tradition, some of them had been eclipsed or lopsidedly applied to only those in the clerical or Religious state of life.
De Caussade recycled these notions from the tradition and applied them to all Christians of any vocation. At first glance we might understandably question how spiritual writings from two centuries ago can help us, but the challenge to seek God always has parallels in every age.
ON THE VOCATION OF WRITING
No matter where we are or when we are, our fallen minds are seduced by illusions of control and attracted to the passing things of this world. We are inclined to distraction. This is fallen human nature, and it has not changed much through the generations. In Western culture today, we always want to be in-the-know and have an obsessive desire for control. We are easily seduced by excessive activity. We avoid divine providence in the present moment because it requires our full attention and honesty about who we are and where we are.
In the hustle and bustle, we can easily lose ourselves. In contrast to these movements, Father de Caussade reminds us that if we are willing to lift the veil that lies beyond all the things of this world, God would endlessly reveal himself to us in the most ordinary, and yet amazing, of ways. Western culture is surrounded by fears of missing out or of only living once with no view to eternity.
They demand an incessant juggling of duties.

We are always busy and we seem to always like it. And this is considered success, even normal. We have so much going on in so many different locales and in so many different types of media. This pace leads us to forget who we are or where we are called to be. In this shuffle, the real treasures of our lives can get lost along the way. We get caught up in the overall rat race that empties our life of its meaning. We neglect sacred things and important things. We become strangers to ourselves. The above is our world today. Father Caussade, however, points us in a different direction.
He gifted us with the divine wisdom contained in Abandonment to Divine Providence , which is not for the fainthearted. The work of the blessed author is written for those who welcome the Cross, or at least have stopped trying to run from it. The masterpiece is a challenge. It demands that we search for value, purpose, and meaning in the array of our human experience — from tragedy and joy to darkness and light. It is an aid to each of us to completely surrender to the workings of divine providence as a mixture of faith, hope, and love, which unites us to God and his work among us.
In this effort, we must not be cowardly, but generous and bold. We must have a generosity of heart. In our adulthood, we have to stand on our own two feet, roll up our sleeves, and build upon the foundation given to us by the holy ones.
Like all those who desire pure hearts before God, we have to ask our own questions. Will I truly surrender my life to it?
