Overview

This Man Bernardin is the visual diary of one of our nation's foremost religious leaders - Joseph Cardinal Bernardin, the Archbishop of Chicago. The 180 striking black-and-white photos featured in this book capture the essence of the man who is Bernardin. Journey with the Cardinal from his Depression-era childhood in South Carolina to his present position as spiritual leader of the second-largest Catholic diocese in America - serving over 2.3 million parishioners. Given unprecedented access to the Cardinal's daily life, Pulitzer-Prize-winning photojournalist John H. White takes you beyond the normal barriers and into the private life of a very public man. Bernardin's own words - collected from pastoral letters, homilies, personal interviews, and other writings - have been chosen to frame White's stunning duotone photographs. White and Bernardin first met in New York City in 1979, when White was assigned to cover Pope John Paul II's visit to the United States. A special friendship grew between White, an African-American photojournalist and son of a Protestant minister, and Bernardin, then the Archbishop of Cincinnati and son of Italian immigrants. With Bernardin's trust, White has been able to observe and record the life of an American cardinal as no other photographer before him.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
When, in 1982, Joseph Louis Bernardin replaced John Patrick Cody as the Archbishop of Chicago, he inherited a diocese whose foundations had been rocked by internal strife and public scandal. Soon after his arrival, however, Bernardin began to weave his magic pastoral spell on Chicago Catholics with his grace, warmth and accessibility, and he breathed new life into a Church. In this beautifully rendered new book, Chicago Sun-Times photojournalist White draws upon his extensive archives to compile a luscious photographic essay on Bernardin's life and ministry. Through 186 black-and-white photographs, we follow the archbishop from his childhood in Columbia, S.C., through his seminary days and into his ministry to the sick, the poor and the wealthy. Selections from Bernardin's own lectures and writings introduce each chapter, and Bernardin biographer Eugene Kennedy's brief essays in each chapter provide biographical and historical context for White's photos. The portrait of the Archbishop that here emerges is one of an enormously popular messenger of the gospel whose love and compassion for others arises out of an intense devotion to God and family. (Sept.)
Ray Olson
Joseph Cardinal Bernardin, archbishop of Chicago, radiates gentleness--a quality that, in his brief (though rather orotund) text, Kennedy harks back to again and again, and that is visible throughout this photo album. Except for a few family-album-type shots of Bernardin as a child and young man, the photos are the work of "Chicago Sun-Times" photojournalist White and have the off-the-cuff immediacy of news photography. That immediacy coupled with Bernardin's gentle spirit produces in this book the portrait of a genuinely humble man who is also a great man--one who advanced the cause of peace by leading the American bishops in their stand against nuclear arms, who publicly showed courage and grace in facing surgery and chemotherapy for cancer, and who answered false accusations of sexual abuse as nearly no other contemporary public figure would have--with mildness and love.
