Never Before In A Book, Fr. Ciszek’s Gems of Writing After The Gulag

The book is filled with treasures...  Many of the people who are interviewed speak of Fr. Ciszek’s demeanor and how he radiated the love of Christ. Sister Andreja Vladia, who met Fr. Ciszek in 1983 said “Father made me feel so comfortable: no rejection, no judgement, no refusal to love – he was so Christlike”.

—TERRI ALUISE, BELLARMINE FORUM


In 1963, following twenty-three years of hard labor and abuse in Russian prison camps, Walter J. Ciszek, S.J., finally returned to America. Had he come back a bitter man, or a man of diminished faith, it would have been hard to fault him. But he didn’t. For the remainder of his years, until his death in 1984, Fr. Ciszek’s grace, faith, and wisdom touched—often in profound and lasting ways—everyone who came into contact with him.

With God in America is a collection of previously unpublished writings on Ciszek’s post-imprisonment life and thoughts. The contents—which include articles he wrote, speeches he delivered at retreats, letters he sent to people he was counseling, and interviews with individuals who knew him personally—present a man unbroken by all that he had endured and eager to share God’s love with others.

From Ciszek’s first days back home in the States to his final words before his death, With God in America demonstrates that saintliness isn’t primarily about acting heroically in dramatic or devastating circumstances, but about honoring the ordinary, everyday aspects of life as treasured gifts from God.
