Following closely the Gospel accounts of Jesus' life, ministry, death, and resurrection, Father Joseph Girzone focuses on particular aspects of Christ’s nature and mission and their significance for Christians today.
Some of the meditations bring to life Jesus' humor and wit; others illuminate his penetrating insights into human frailties. Together they give us a portrait of a warm and supremely compassionate being who relates to each person as an individual of worth.
Girzone shows how our own compassion is the most profound expression of God’s love and wisdom. These thoughtful, incisive meditations will inspire everyone to embrace God’s eternal message of love and hope, help and healing.
