[The following is part five of a ten part series of meditations based on insights and excerpts from the book He Leadeth Me by American Jesuit Father Walter Ciszek. The book details his faith journey as spent for 23 years in Soviet prisons and labor camps of Siberia. A truly amazing testament of faith and wisdom!!] Consider the following excerpt:
“…the fullest freedom I had ever known, the greatest sense of security, came from abandoning my will to do only the will of God. What was there to fear so long as I did his will? Not death. Not failure, except failure to do his will. ‘For if God is with us, who can stand against us?’…For to know that he directed me in all my actions, that he sustained me with his grace, gave me a sense of peace and courage beyond description.”
p. 158-159, He Leadeth Me, By Father Walter J. Ciszek, S.J.
