The Sacrament of the Present Moment is the three hundred-year-old classic of spiritual guidance and enlightenment by Jean-Pierre de Caussade, ordained member of the Society of Jesus. In this wise, hopeful, and powerfully stirring masterwork of Christian thought and daily practice, de Caussade encourages a selfless abandonment to God as a means of achieving grace and conquering pride and ego. Each day is a sacrament, the author assures us, and the lessons and wisdom of The Sacrament of the Present Moment can better enable us to hear God’s voice as He speaks to us, always, with love.
Jean-Pierre de Caussade was born in Toulouse, France, and was ordained a member of the Society of Jesus in 1708. In 1731, he was appointed spiritual director of the Jesuit retreat house in Nancy, where he undertook the spiritual direction of the Nuns of the Visitation. It is the notes of his addresses to the nuns that form this book.
Kitty Muggeridge, the wife of author and journalist Malcolm Muggeridge, is well-known as a translator.
W. Thomas Bellegante5 Stars Out Of 5April 12, 2010W. Thomas BelleganteWhen you enter into this book you need no distractions. Read a sentence and chew on it awhile. Read it again and chew on it some more. It may take you a week or a month to properly go through a chapter. Yes, it is that good. Buy several and pass them out. I know many who have. That's how I got one.
