Extraordinary Divine Favors

Hey, there!

Here are some insightful quotes of truth from “Abandonment To Divine Providence” taken from http://www.ccel.org/ccel/decaussade/abandonment.ii_1.ii.i.vii.html ….editing and emphasis will be mine:

“Those graces which are called extraordinary and are given as privileges to certain souls, are only so called because there are so few sufficiently faithful to become worthy  of receiving them. This will be made manifest at the day of judgment.”

“Alas! it will then be seen that instead of these divine favours having been withheld by God, it has been entirely by their own fault  that these souls have been deprived of them.”

“What UNTOLD BLESSINGS  they would have received through the COMPLETE SUBMISSION of a steadfast goodwill ,”

End of quotes.

Saints that come to mind of whom he is referring to are the likes of Brother Lawrence (please reference the Category “Practice The Presence Of God”) and all the other mystics and faithful ones who attained to this high degree of submission and abandonment.

All the best, in Him.
