- Abandonment to God: The Way of Peace of St. Therese of Lisieux
I will teach you how you must navigate the stormy seas of the world with the trust
and the love of a child who knows that his Father cherishes him and will never
abandon him to danger.”
So wrote St. Therese, the “Little Flower,” whose weakness and frailty nevertheless
led her to become one of the great lilies in the garden of God.
Few have known the depths of suffering as Therese did, yet even fewer have
possessed the deep peace that flled her soul. Now Fr. Joël Guibert, himself
steeped in the richness of the interior life, reveals Therese’s secret of serenity: total
abandonment to God.
Far from a terrifying surrender to the unknown, this abandonment is rather a total
acceptance of the providential love of God, who directs our hearts even in the
darkest nights of our lives, without letting us so much as stumble.
Join Therese on this gentle road to sanctity, and turn over your fears, great and
small, to the Lord. Allow His love to fill your soul and experience the peace that
comes with total abandonment to God.
