Product Description

In this wide-ranging vision of the Catholic faith, Cardinal George calls us to reflect on how God, revealed in Jesus Christ, makes a difference in everything we do and all that we are. In the light of the risen Christ, Catholics are united with each other, people of other faiths, and even those that don't believe in God.

By recognizing our identity in communion we learn that our relations whether personal or public, make us who we are. This shared identity calls us to see aspects of our lives, including the upheavals of globalization, the increasing role of the laity in the Church, and the conversation between liberal and conservative Catholics differently.

Cardinal George draws from the intellectual riches of Catholic faith, from Cyril of Alexandria to John Paul II, and weaves in his own experiences in faith—from a moving encounter with a non-Christian in Zambia to the remarkable pilgrimage of young people who observed Pope John Paul II's visit to Mexico City.

Publisher's Description

Penned by the leading intellectual in the American Catholic hierarchy, this debut brings together some of the most influential writings on the Catholic vision—not just the Church itself but of the relation and unity of all people. Weaving together intellectual insight and personal wisdom, Francis Cardinal George offers a luminous Catholic vision of communion, illustrating the Church’s relation to numerous religions as well as the secular world. The book draws from both the author’s observations of Catholicism in cultures around the globe and countless theologians’ perspectives—including Popes John Paul II and Benedict XVI, Thomas Aquinas, and Francis of Assisi—and demonstrates how to recognize the self-giving, liberating God who provides freedom from the competitive, oppressive idols of secular modernity. An assortment of fascinating stories is shared, from a poignant moment with a non-Christian in Zambia to the humbling dedication of volunteers who came to observe Pope John Paul II’s visit to Mexico City. Confronting controversial issues head-on, this volume will inspire Christians everywhere while also offering non-Christians a renewed understanding of what a Christian lifestyle means for political and personal life today.

Editorial Reviews

"A scholarly and spiritual collection of essays on the role of the Catholic faith in the modern world, from one of the most thoughtful men in the American hierarchy."  —Publishers Weekly


"Francis Cardinal George is a formidable intellectual presence in the United States. He seeks to provide signposts toward a new Catholic imagination."  —Robert Imbelli, America magazine


"A manifesto that shows how the authentic Catholic faith can transcend the divisions within the Church and how this experience can guide our path through the ‘ambiguities’ of our culture.” Monsignor Lorenzo Albacete, author, God at the Ritz
