"Stay With Us..." Encounters With The Risen Lord
Reflections by Fr. Thomas Rosica, CSB. Forward by His Beatitude Michel Sabbah, Latin Patriarch-Emeritus of Jerusalem.
"As Christ's followers living today, how do we know that Christ truly lives? In our own direct encounters with Christ alive and in witness who testify to their fresh encounters with him, like Fr. Thomas Rosica's faith-quickening witness,recorded in this little book. We open its pages with trembling hope that its words will awaken us anew to Christ's living presence among us in all our living and dying. 'Behold, I know my redeemer lives!' "- Sr. Helen Prejean, CSJ
"The very heart of Christian faith is the conviction that through Jesus Christ, the power of God's love has defeated death and brought new life to our world. The dynamic reflection on resurrection found in Thomas Rosica's "Stay with us..." breathes the living spirit of the Gospels themselves: vivid, powerful, inspiring. Here is an informed and illuminating probe into the diverse beauty of the gospel accounts and their meaning for our Christian life and mission today." - Donald Senior, C.P., President-Emeritus and Professor of New Testament, Catholic Theological Union, Chicago
"This collection of reflections is of great assistance to us as we continue to keep the light of the Resurrection shining in our world. We preach Christ Risen from the dead. These meditations are the fruit of Fr. Rosica's studies in the Holy Land and his personal experiences as he proclaims the Kerygma. It explains the Scriptures and helps us to understand the Resurrection of Jesus. I highly recommend it, as it helps us to experience what the two disciples felt in their hearts on the road to Emmaus." - Cardinal Kevin Farrell, Prefect, Vatican Dicastery for Laity, Family and Life.
