Monsignor Kenneth Velo's vocal personality and effortless delivery capture the essence of these spiritual reflections by Cardinal Bernardin, who was Archbishop of Chicago. The Monsignor's voice rings with sincerity as he renders The Stations of the Cross, which provide the framework for Bernardin's journey to peace in the face of serious personal challenges--a false accusation of sexual misconduct and then a diagnosis of pancreatic cancer, which ultimately took his life. Monsignor Velo's tenure as executive assistant to Cardinal Bernardin gives him added insights in his delivery of the text. His deft commentary gives listeners a sense of hope, a renewal of faith, and the courage to continue their own journeys in difficult circumstances. This will appeal to Catholics but will also touch people of any faith. G.D.W. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 07]
