Contemplating Christ with Luke
Cardinal George Pell
Cardinal George Pell's Contemplating Christ with Luke comprises a series of reflections on a year's Sunday readings from the Gospel of St. Luke. In his typical down-to-earth, accessible style, Cardinal Pell uses contemporary events and landmarks to enrich our appreciation of the Gospel's spiritual messages.
As Cardinal Pell notes in his informative introduction, St. Luke's Gospel is especially
appealing: “Luke is a polished story teller, more eloquent than the other gospel
writers, even if he is less dramatic than St. John at his best. We must be grateful,
as St. Ambrose, the Archbishop of Milan in the second half of the fourth century
pointed out, because St. Luke 'told us more about Our Lord’s wonderful works than
the other Evangelists’.”Contemplating Christ with Luke” is beautifully illustrated
throughout with modern iconic paintings by Francisco (Kiko) Argüello, cofounder of
the Neo-Catechumenal Way and each brief self-contained chapter would be an ideal
springboard for planning homilies or classroom lessons.
