During the nearly six years that Cardinal Theodore E. McCarrick presided over the Church in Washington, DC, he wrote a weekly column for the Catholic Standard titled "Thinking of You." With candor and personal warmth, McCarrick narrated aspects of his work in the diocese and beyond, reflecting on its importance for the life of the Church--locally, nationally, and globally.Through the weeks and years collected in these pages, McCarrick's intelligent pastoral leadership is revealed, as is his constant dedication and hard work, his love for the liturgy, and his deep devotion to prayer. One also glimpses his wisdom through the events that occurred during his tenure: the beginning of the war in Iraq, the presidential election of 2004, and the death of Pope John Paul II.
According to America magazine, "The most important Catholic group that you may never have heard of is the Sant’Egidio community." National Catholic Reporter stated that Sant’Egidio has managed "to broker peace accords in war-ravaged countries, pressure the United Nations to pass a worldwide moratorium on the death penalty, and run one of the most successful anti-AIDS programs in sub-Saharan Africa."Yet for all of its accomplishments, the community of Sant’Egidio sees itself primarily as a group committed to prayer. The Sant’Egidio Book of Prayer brings the community’s daily prayer to readers, inviting them into its spiritual life and into solidarity with its mission of service and peacemaking.
The Legacy of Avery Cardinal Dulles, S.J.: His Words and His Witness
In his nearly 50-year career teaching philosophy and theology at Fordham and other distinguished universities, Avery Cardinal Dulles wrote and traveled extensively, writing 25 books and more than 800 articles, book reviews, forewords, introductions, and letters to the editor, translated into at least 14 languages and distributed worldwide. This work serves as a companion to the previous volume of McGinley Lectures, published as Church and Society (Fordham, 2008), and also provides an independent research guide for scholars, theologians, and anyone interested in American Catholicism in the decades immediately before and following the Second Vatican Council.From his poems and reflections composed in prep school, where he first crossed paths with John Fitzgerald Kennedy (with whom he would graduate from Harvard in 1940), to a private meeting in his last days arranged at Pope Benedict XVI’s personal request, the book explores a theological topography that includes truly monumental figures and events of the modern era. As the product of perhaps the most influential American Catholic theologian in history, Dulles’s writings continue to inspire and shape the way theology has been studied and practiced in academic institutions throughout the United States and the world.Having worked closely with Cardinal Dulles, the editors have compiled an exhaustive bibliography of his works and have included a series of essays that shed light on the twilight of his life, one that intersects with ecclesiastical, theological, philosophical, and political leaders of every stripe and worldview. Contributions include Dulles’s farewell lecture as McGinley Professor of Religion and Society with a stirring response by Robert Imbelli; a reflection on the cardinal’s last days by longtime research assistant Anne-Marie Kirmse, O.P.; and the moving homily given at his funeral by Edward Cardinal Egan. The book also chronicles Cardinal Dulles’s relationship with Fordham University, where he began his academic career as a Jesuit regent, teaching philosophy (1951–53), and where, for the last twenty years of his life, he held an endowed chair named in honor of a former president of Fordham, Laurence J. McGinley, S.J. This text will serve as a liminal passageway into the splendid mansion of Dulles’s thought for theologians, scholars, believers, and all thinking men and women of goodwill.
Faithful Witness: Michel Sabbah on Peace and Reconciliation in the Holy Land
Each chapter of Faithful Witness, a collection of Michel Sabbahs essential writings, contains a theme developed during his twenty-year tenure as Patriarch of Jerusalem. Beginning with Reading the Bible in the Land of the Bible, Faithful Witness proceeds from Gods Grace and the Nativity to Lent and Jesus Resurrection. In between, Patriarch Sabbah addresses other important topics, including the role of the Church in the Holy Land, Jerusalem, ecumenism, Christian-Muslim dialogue and Palestinian-Israeli relations. For anyone who wants to understand the complex status quo of the Holy Land today, this careful and thoughtful selection from the work and teaching of Patriarch Sabbah is a useful and most insightful guide. The first Palestinian to be called to the dignity and the challenging ministry of Latin Patriarch of Jerusalem, this brilliant and courageous religious leader has been for 20 years a father to his community and a test to his adversaries. As you read his words you see a man who never gives up hope that the power of God will ultimately bring a new day of harmony to this land where the ancient prophets lived and died. Cardinal Theodore E. McCarrick, Ph.D., D.D. Archbishop Emeritus of WashingtonPatriarch Sabbahs inclusive vision embraces all peoples, including Palestinians and Israelis. He courageously extends himself to open dialogue with leaders who do not share his vision of peace with justice. His friendship and conversations with Palestinian and Israeli leaders do not diminish his objectivity, search for dialogue and truth and calls for peacemaking, peace building and reconciliation.
