1 Christoph Cardinal Schoenborn From Death to Life
ip 0898705355 / 9780898705355 The Christian Journey
Bishop Schönborn, editor of the monumental Catechism of the Catholic Church, presents profound reflections on the meaning of death, judgment and eternal life, and the Church's teachings on this eschatological dimension of our faith. Lamenting the absence today of sermons and writings on this important subject, Schönborn meets that need by delving deeply into the Church's rich tradition of thought on life beyond death. Today, language about man's pilgrim path, about his homeland in heaven, of earthly tribulation and hope for life beyond death, has become largely a foreign language in the Christian churches. It is only seldom that a sermon dares to look out on the vista of eternal life. It seems that fear of being accused of dispensing a consolation in a life after death and of fleeing from the world has become to a large extent a self-censorship. Bishop Schönborn says that this "eschatological amnesia" is one reason why many people no longer turn to the Church when they want information about the "last things." In this book, Schönborn shows that Jesus Christ is the focal point of the Christian vision of life on earth and life after death. Christ is the Alpha and the Omega, the one who discloses to us what "existence in transition" means. Length: 192 pages Edition: Paperback

In a certain sense, the 'essential elements of the faith' have their origin in a treasury of the heart of Jesus." -Bishop Christoph Schönborn "A masterpiece of thoughtfulness and clarity in explaining the way of Jesus.

8 Christoph Cardinal Schoenborn Loving the Church
ip 0898706769 / 9780898706765 Retreat to John Paul II and the Papal Household
In this series of retreat meditations preached to Pope John Paul II and the papal household during a Lenten retreat, Cardinal Christoph Schönborn uses the Catechism of the Catholic Church (of which he was the general editor) and Sacred Scripture to lead us to a deeper union with Christ by helping us to understand and love the Church, His bride. To love the Church, which the Catechism calls "a living communion with Jesus Christ", we must see her with the eyes of Jesus, who "loved the Church and gave Himself up for her." As he draws us into a deeper understanding of the Church, who she is and where the deepest wellsprings of her being lie are the theme of his meditations. He also illustrates many points by using the thoughts of the new doctor of the Church, St. Thérèse of Lisieux. She found her vocation to be "love in the heart of the Church" and can offer us a renewed and vital vision of the Church. "It is an awesome task to preach a retreat in the presence of the Pope. Cardinal Schönborn does it successfully by presenting the methods of St. Ignatius Loyola's famous retreat in a fresh way using the new Catechism, the Bible, and St. Thérèse of Lisieux." — Fr. Ken Baker, S.J., Editor, Homiletic and Pastoral Review Cardinal Christoph Schönborn is the Archbishop of Vienna, Austria. He was the general editor of the Catechism of the Catholic Church, and is the author of God's Human Face and Living the Catechism of the Catholic Church.
