Excerpt from Abandonment to Divine Providence:
Oh! divine Love, hide yourself, test us, mingle, confuse and snap like threads all our ideas and systems. Let us stumble and find neither roads nor paths in the darkness. Formerly we found you in the peace of solitude, in prayer, in various religious exercises, in suffering, in helping our neighbors, in turning away from social and business affairs. We have done all we can to please you, but now we can no longer find you in these things as once we did. May our failure compel us to find you in yourself, and then in all things and everywhere.
