The Gift of Peace: Personal Reflections by Cardinal Joseph Bernardin

Joseph Cardinal Bernardins gentle leadership throughout his life of ministerial service had made him an internationally beloved figure, but the words he left behind about his final journey would change the lives of many more people from all faiths, from all backgrounds, and from all over the world. In the last two months of his life, Joseph Cardinal Bernardin made it his ultimate mission to share his personal reflections and insights as a legacy to those he left behind.The Gift of Peacereveals the Cardinals spiritual growth amid a string of traumatic events: a false accusation of sexual abuse; reconciliation a year later with his accuser, who had earlier recanted the charges; a diagnosis of pancreatic cancer and surgery; the return of cancer, now in his liver; his decision to discontinue chemotherapy and live his remaining days as fully as possible.In these pages, Bernardin tells his story openly and honestly, and shares the profound peace he came to at the end of his life.He accepted his peace as a gift from God, and he in turn now shares that gift with the world.
