Uniformity with God's Will is a short book/pamphlet about living according to God's will and the benefits that come from it. In short, those who give up themselves to God and say "Thy will be done" receive many benefits that those stressing and attempting to control their lives do not. God does everything for a reason, and He won't give you anything you cannot handle. The chapter titles give an overview of St. Alphonsus' point: "Excellence of This Virtue", "Uniformity of in All Things", "Happiness Deriving from Perfect Uniformity", and "God Wills Our Good". The final chapter concerns dealing with spiritual desolation and feelings of abandonment.

Highly recommended for any Catholics interesting in achieving spiritual perfection by way of uniting their will with God's, this is an excellent short introduction to the concept. It can be found very cheaply through TAN Books or for free on the internet. Either way it's definitely worth picking up. ( )

First words
Perfection is founded entirely on the love of God: "Charity is the bond of perfection" (Col. 3:14); and perfect love of God means the complete union of our will with God's: "The principal effect of love is so to unite the wills of those who love each other as to make them will the same things."[1]
