Overview When troubles and worries threaten to drive God's peace from your heart, these pages will restore that peace and place it on a firm and lasting foundation. Fr. Gerald Vann, author of this compassionate and beautiful book, knows that it's easy to let little things disturb your peace: fears and ambitions, passing worries, a small slight, aches and pains in the body, vanities of soul. So he shows you how God abides even in your troubles. Once you learn how to look for Him there, you'll find Him. Passionately, movingly, and concisely, Fr. Vann shows you how. Here you'll learn simple secrets that will help you accept God's will in all things - without becoming fatalistic, passive, or complacent. You'll find the one fact that can anchor your soul's peace. You'll even discover how your ordinary actions and gestures can help you glimpse the infinite within your everyday life. In a word, Fr.

Grand Antidote for Modern Mediocrity Mar 31, 2004
Gerald Vann's slim book goes to the heart of calming our troubled hearts: accepting the will of God. My favorite section is his commentary on the value of genuflection. There are many other passages in this small book worth underlining and taking to heart, including passages dealing with providence, liturgy, and loving with the love of God.
It helps MY restless heart! Nov 16, 2000
This little work is a gem. I am used to reading "high theology" and do not often take the time to read something short and simple to refresh my soul and keep me grounded in the basic truths of Christianity -- foremost of which is to keep one's eyes ever on the Lord, always striving to do HIS will and not our own. Busy folks (and who isn't?) will appreciate the fact that this book can be read in one evening, and though it is simple, it is simply profound. Keep it by your bedside and pick it up whenever you find yourself getting caught up in the trials and snares of this temporal world. It will lift your gaze back up to eternity and put things in proper perspective.
On an asthetical note, Sophia Press always has beautifully presented books, with striking covers, and attractive print. It makes the reading of these truths all the more enjoyable.
