Our journey from Ash Wednesday through Lent to Easter and after often can be somber as we reflect on the familiar stories of Jesus Christ's experiences in the wilderness, his journey to Jerusalem and his relationship with the disciples during this time. "All Shall Be Well" is an excellent companion for the journey, helping us to "the astonishing realization," as the editors say, "that we are in him, and thus in God and each other, and all is well."
Highly recommended for parish libraries and for all readers who seek a wise guide to light their Lenten path.
A powerful collection of writings from poets, activists, and religious sisters and brothers, this volume from Orbis includes voices who speak for peace, caring for the needy, and uplifting the weak.... an inspiring and uplifting companion.
