Item description for The Mystery of the Cross by Basil Hume...

Why do tragedies occur? Why do the innocent have to suffer? Why do so many of us experience pain and desolation during our lives? In these profound reflections drawn from his homilies and speeches over the past twenty years, Cardinal Basil Hume shares his own questioning, his own searching, his own anguish. He joins with us as a fellow pilgrim walking through life, and mediates on the deep mysteries and uncertainties of our journey. He encourages us to enter into Christ's cruel and barbaric death on the cross and to try to discover some meaning. "Our minds, feeble and limited," he says, Simply cannot understand all these things. But through our faith, through that gift of his, that initiative of his, we can begin to wonder and pray, and in our wondering and praying, find some, though only some understanding."

Reviews - What do customers think about The Mystery of the Cross?

excellent  Mar 30, 2001
George Basil Hume,O.S.B., of blessed memory, was a prince among men long before he was mad a "prince" of the Roman Church. These refelctions, given as mostly homilies{sermons] during,but not exclusively, Holy Week,are broken into 3 sections 1:Embracing mystery 2:Inner Peace 3:Celebrating mystery. Hume was singular among churchmen of his elevation in his common touch{owing somewhat to his benedictine training},and had a gift of speaking plainly. As he was also slwoly dying of cancer, these meditations are therefor more poingnant.He is especially good on the centrality of the cross, which,then makes this all the more appropriate during lent. A good book from a great man.
Pathway to God  Jul 21, 2000
Basil Hume (d.1999)lived as a Cardinal of the Church, but lived at the grassroots. His real humility is very evident in this book and in his words. He has an extraordinary capacity to communicate the Gospel message in simple and evocative ways that touched ordinary hearts -- like mine. This book is an essential companion for anyone on the journey that leads to God, and for me, it has been the "good news" about God's love for us, the heart of the Christian message and mission.
