The Gift of Peace

The Gift of Peace

Personal Reflections


A New York Times Bestseller!

In the final two months of his life, Joseph Cardinal Bernardin made it his mission to share his personal reflections and insights in this book, The Gift of Peace. Using as a framework the previous three years of his life, which included a widely publicized false accusation of sexual misconduct and a re-diagnosis of cancer after 15 months of remission, Cardinal Bernardin tells his story openly and honestly. At the end of his life, the Cardinal showed us all that one of the greatest gifts we can receive is the gift of peace—a gift that comes from God alone.
