Item description for The Final Journey: Of Joseph Cardinal Bernardin by John White...
Overview This tribute to the late Joseph Cardinal Bernardin combines the photography and vision of Pulitzer Prize-winning photojournalist John H. White with the words of some of those closest to the Cardinal - Bishop Raymond Goedert, Monsignor Kenneth Velo, Sister Mary Brian Costello and Sister Mary Lucia Skalka. While the photographs capture poignant moments of the final year of the Cardinal's life, the written reflections help put these images into the broader context of a life dedicated to serving others as priest, cardinal, brother, and friend.

Show us the way Sep 24, 2007
As Fr. Velo so eloquently and loving eulogized his mentor and friend, "didn't he teach us, didn't he show us the way." I watched the funeral on television and was so moved at the time and now when I read the same eulogy contained in this book I am once again moved in wonder and awe. Anyone who is suffering with an illness or a caregivier should read this final journey of a truly blessed man.
The death of Cardinal Bernardin Jan 7, 1999
This book is a wonderful glimpse at the final days of one of America's most prominent Catholic leaders. Cardinal Bernardin embraced his trials with grace and dignity, and thus set an example for all of us. For those who would like a glimpse at the death of this great Catholic leader, I really can't say enough good about this book.
