Product Description

Sometimes discernment appears difficult, and we strive to "be still" in order to hear God's voice. After his spiritual director died, St. Alphonsus Liguori wrote timeless wisdom in a letter to one of his spiritual daughters, which became the classic book titled Uniformity with God's Will. Dan Burke now deconstructs St. Alphonsus' eighteenth-century masterwork for you. He intersperses pertinent explanations and insights throughout this great saint's writing and offers contemplation questions for each chapter.

"We should most confidently abandon ourselves to all the dispositions of divine providence, because they are for our own good," St. Alphonsus says. Burke demonstrates on page after page how the "wind and waves" might assist you in ascending to oneness with God. You will learn:

  •     The “paralyzing cocktail” we drink when we reject God’s will
  •     When good works are displeasing to God (Can you guess?)
  •     Three prayers that will assist you in directing all things to God’s will
  •     Two ways we can know God’s love and hear His voice
  •     Two life-altering spiritual disciplines according to St. Teresa of Ávila
  •     How humiliation, adversity, and trials can bring freedom, healing, and salvation (You will be shocked!)

Liguori intersperses intriguing real-life examples from the saints to help you stay strong in the face of adversity. He outlines three temptations and how to fight them, as well as four practises of conformity to God's will and a guaranteed way to join your sufferings to Christ's sufferings.

You will learn what to do during times of aridity or desolation. Above all, you will learn how to maintain inner calm in all circumstances and to engage in loving discourse with God. You will experience His divine embrace and the fulfilment of your deepest wishes if you learn how to fully entrust yourself to God's pure will.

A "What Next?" section assists you in taking practical measures towards doing God's will. Burke also summarises the Paradigm of Ascent, which gives sometimes hidden yet basic truths and practises required to live out Liguori's wisdom and know God's serenity. He also includes a simple action plan for implementing these beneficial practises in your life.
