The Manual - Epictetus - A Short Summary and Review

Sacrament of the Present Moment - Jean Pierre de Caussade - A Short Summary & Review

 A short summary of Sacrament of the Present Moment:

How to find God in your everyday duties.

My favorite Jean Pierre de Caussade quote from the book:

"God teaches the soul by pains and obstacles, not by ideas."

Questions to ponder while reading Sacrament of the Present Moment:

Does the worship of God require elaborate ritual?

Can you find grace in your daily life?

My review of the book:

Great book on living the life God gave you.

A wonderful "How to Find Peace" manual.

Doing one's duty is a great way to perform a sacred act.
