FROM THE BACK COVER:
"As we relinquish control over the helm of our lives, the words of Our Lady of Guadalupe touch us very deeply, speaking louder to us than anything else. When Mary appeared in 1531 to Blessed Juan Diego [canonized July 2002], an Aztec Indian who had converted to Christianity, she encouraged him in the midst of his difficult situations to seek his total support in her: 'LISTEN AND PUT IT IN YOUR HEART, MY SON, SMALLEST OF ALL, THAT IT IS NOTHING THAT FRIGHTENED OR AFFLICTED YOU. LET NOT WORRY PERTURB YOUR FACE, YOUR HEART. . . AM I NOT HERE, I WHO AM YOUR MOTHER? ARE YOU NOT BENEATH MY SHADOW AND PROTECTION? AM I NOT THE SOURCE OF YOUR HAPPINESS? ARE YOU NOT IN THE HOLLOW OF MY MANTLE, IN THE CROSSING OF MY ARMS? DO YOU NEED ANYTHING ELSE?' So, all of our struggles will remain difficult for us to bear as long as, believing in ourselves, we count on ourselves and seek human support. The arms of Mary, where we can find security and happiness, are in reality the arms of God Himself, who completely permeates the one whom the Church calls the Vessel of the Holy Spirit." --To Give Over the 'Helm' of Our Own Lives, GOD ALONE SUFFICES pp. 107-108.
“If there is one book specifically designed to help lay people develop an authentic spiritual life, God Alone Suffices is that book. After reading it twice I could not help but compare it to the spiritual classic Abandonment to Divine Providence by Jean-Pierre de Caussade. . . . God Alone Suffices is thoroughly practical and inspiring. It is grounded in the spirituality of the great doctors of the interior life: John of the Cross, Teresa of Avila and Therese of Lisieux. This book will challenge you to re-evaluate your spiritual life and help you grow closer to God. I highly recommend it.” (Read the complete review at RevolutionofLove.com.)
