The Gift of Oneself will be for many a fresh; new approach to spirituality - an appeal to generous souls to offer themselves to God as a gift that is at once fitting - since He has given us all we are and have - and complete; for we thereby hold back nothing for ourselves. And in return; Almighty God in a special way concerns Himself with the sanctification of our souls and the care of our temporal needs. Jesus will work wonders in a soul so given over to Him; for He is the best of all spiritual directors; and He knows exactly the place in the Mystical Body that a consecrated soul should occupy.
This gift of oneself to God is easy; for all we have to do is love Him. In return for the gift of oneself; God responds by giving Himself. What more could we want or need? Those who read this book derive a great feeling of peace and security from it. The Gift of Oneself will be a surprise and a delight to those generous souls who are ready to embark upon a secure and rewarding spiritual life!
