Prayerfully read each section of this website, realizing that each section adds an important dimension to this spirituality. Thus, it should be considered as a whole.

 

If I was going to point to any one part as that which provides the foundation and underpinnings for this spirituality, it would be the section on St. Therese of Lisieux.

 

This section is based on an article titled "The Teachings of St. Therese of Lisieux on Purgatory." It was authored by Fr. Hubert J. van Dijk, ORC and published in "Der Fels," a German magazine whose title in English is "The Rock."  (It is presented here in the English translation, with a link to the original German.)

 

I credit this article about St. Therese of Lisieux's teaching on Purgatory, along with the writings of St. Louis de Montfort and the Diary of St. Faustina Kowalska, for leading me to the path of total trust in Jesus Christ, a path upon which "the joy of salvation" has become a living experience.

 

It is my prayer that many others will discover why this spirituality of abandonment founded on complete trust in Jesus Christ produces such profound interior joy and peace.
