de Caussade: submission

Thursday, January 26, 2023
    Feast of Timothy and Titus, Companions of Paul
    Commemoration of Dorothy Kerin, Founder of the Burrswood Healing Community, 1963
    Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the Lord’s will is.
    —Ephesians 5:17 (NIV)
    Perfection does not consist in the knowledge of God’s order, but in submission to it. The order of God, the good pleasure of God, the will of God, the action of God, grace—all these are one and the same thing in this life... Perfection is nothing else than the faithful cooperation of the soul with the work of God. This ultimate purpose of our life grows and increases in our souls secretly and without our knowledge.
    ... Jean-Pierre de Caussade (1675-1751), Abandonment to Divine Providence, I.i.4 (see the book)
    See also Eph. 5:17; Matt. 5:48; 12:50; Rom. 12:1-2; Phil. 3:12; Jas. 1:22; 1 Pet. 1:15-16
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, lead me to follow Your will.
