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 Here more than 30 of his unpublished homilies have been carefully edited and framed in the context of the Stations of the Cross, allowing readers "to enter more deeply into the mystery of Jesus'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. (Mar.)
