The Name of God Is Mercy
By Pope Francis
“To remain indifferent to good fortune or to adversity by accepting it all from the hand of God without questioning, not to ask for things to be done as we would like them but as God wishes, to make the intention of all our prayers that God’s will should be perfectly accomplished in ourselves and in all creatures is to find the secret of happiness and content.”
Trustful Surrender to Divine Providence: The Secret of Peace and Happiness was written by Father Jean Baptiste Saint-Jure, S.J., and St. Claude de la Colombiere, S.J. This particular volume was culled from Father Saint-Jure’s great work entitled The Knowledge and Love of Our Lord Jesus Christ, to which was added a further extract from St. de la Colombiere’s writings. It was originally published in 1961 by Alba House and subsequently reissued by St. Raphael Editions in 1978, 1980, and (in cooperation with TAN) 1983. It received the Nihil Obstat and Imprimatur upon release.
