Maryknoll Fathers and Brothers have travelled to every corner of the earth to spread the gospel for more than 100 years. What is the spirituality that motivates and sustains them?
In this beautiful celebration of their life and the lives of those they live among, Fr. Joseph Veneroso shows how these missioners are in fact two-way mirrors. They reflect the love of Christ for all of us by their example, and the holiness, goodness, and beauty they see in the lives of the people they serve. What they see and experience overseas also profoundly affects and changes them. For Maryknollers, all peoples are partners on an exciting spiritual journey—which we are all called to share.
Mirrors of Grace shines a light on spiritual ideas that can uplift all of us. Filled with true stories and fullcolor pictures of Maryknollers in action, it will inspire us to express that spirit wherever we happen to be.
Joseph R. Veneroso, M.M., is a Maryknoll priest and the former publisher of Maryknoll magazine. He is the author of God in Unexpected Places (Orbis, 2007) and Honoring the Void (Orbis, 2009).
