This is a memoir of spiritual writer and poet Kathleen Norris who discovered relevance to her life and work in"acedia", a concept she discovered in the writings of a fourth-century monk, Evagrius Ponticus.
In the last months of his life, Joseph Cardinal Bernardin lived out the stations, from being judged unjustly, to his bearing of his own cross, and from his last meeting with his mother to his public death. In his own life, Cardinal Bernardin reproduced the passion and death of Jesus. Eugene Kennedy, Cardinal Bernardin's longtime friend, delivers here a powerful meditation on the Catholic stations, based on scriptural scholarship, and the stations Cardinal Bernardin lived.
Raymond E. Brown's masterful study examines every detail of the four Gospel stories of the final agonizing days of Jesus' life. Where others simply describe the accounts of the death of the Messiah as if they were one seamless whole, Father Brown reads and explains each Gospel on its own terms and elucidates the themes that make each one unique.
Pope Francis invites all humanity to an intimate and personal dialogue on the subject closest to his heart--mercy--which has long been the cornerstone of his faith and is now the central teaching of his papacy.

Offers fascinating insights into how the prayerful experience of lectio divina can be sustained and invigorated by the techniques of sacred reading--techniques distilled from the author's deep acquaintance with the Bible and the ancient books of Western spirituality.
