by Benedict J. Groeschel, CFR and Terrence L. Weber
Harcover: 276 pages (Oct 1, 1990)
This is not a biography in the strict, historical sense of the word but rather a spiritual portrait of a great Christian who deeply touched the lives of thousands of ordinary people, one who whom he humbly felt himself to be. And he managed to do so at a time of extraordinary upheaval in the Church and in the nation by faithfully fulfilling his challenging responsibilities as priest, bishop and archbishop of one of the largest metropolitan sees in the world. All the while he was battling, in heroic silence, the insidious cancer which would ultimately take him to his grave. His love for life, family, the priesthood and his friends was only exceeded by his love for Jesus who inspired all the rest. This moving account of his life is a heartfelt tribute to a man of God who may well have been a saint.
