Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Bernardin (1928-1996) touched the hearts of many with his bestselling book, The Gift of Peace, released two months after his death from pancreatic cancer. Here more than 30 of his unpublished homilies have been carefully edited and framed in the context of the Stations of the Cross, allowing readers "to enter more deeply into the mystery of Jesus' suffering, death and resurrection." Editors Spilly and Langford perceptively connect the Sixth Station (in which Veronica wipes Jesus' brow) to a homily on personal service, and interpret the Tenth Station (in which Jesus is stripped naked) to Bernardin's poignant reflections on the Holocaust. This short book is a perfect aid for meditation during Lent or any time in the liturgical year. Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
Library Journal - Library Journal
In what is truly a posthumous child to the much-lamented Joseph Cardinal Bernardin, editors Spilly and Langford have assembled an anthology of Bernardin's insights, reflections, and prayers largely from his homilies and arranged them in a structure based on the Stations of the Cross. Bernardin was never so much a profound thinker or theologian as a man of God's peace, and while most readers will not find this anthology transformative, many should derive some comfort from the words and ideas of one of the 20th century's most respected clergymen. For collections where there is a strong Catholic readership. Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
