A Blessing to Each Other: Cardinal Joseph Bernardin and Jewish-Catholic Dialogue

Very Rev. Thomas A. Baima

In this book Cardinal Bernardin’s most respected and effective voice proclaims a new way in which Judaism and Christianity, Jews and Christians can meet, listen to each other and learn to live side by side in friendship and peace. This selection of Cardinal Bernardin’s addresses, prayers and columns over the years shows the breadth of his interest and the depth of his commitment to the Jewish-Catholic dialogue. Included in this collection are the basic documents that have guided Catholics since Vatican II, thoughtful introductions to the Chicago experience and to the theology of Cardinal Bernardin, and questions for dialogue groups and personal reflection. Included are introductions by Herman Schaalman, Thomas A. Baima, John T. Pawlikowski and Daniel F. Montalbano.
