The Journey to Peace (ADULT)
Soon after Joseph Cardinal Bernadin's death, selections from his 1500 homilies and unpublished personal reflections were gathered into this beautiful aid to prayer. It continues the uplifting message of faith, hope and love of the international best-seller, The Gift of Peace. The Stations of the Cross, focusing on the suffering, death and resurrection of Jesus, provide the framework for this eloquent legacy. A 15th station, "Jesus is Raised from the Dead" has been added at the suggestion of Pope John Paul II. Cardinal Bernadin's holiness shines through the reflections inviting all faiths to join the journey that leads to peace and freedom. The book portrays a shepherd dedicated to following the Lord and overcoming alienation in every human situation. Read by Monsignor Kenneth Velo.
