Originally published in Italian,Gift of Self was translated into English by Mary’s Advocates and has the imprimatur of Bishop Richard G. Lennon. Preface is by the author’s bishop, His Excellency Salvatore Di Cristina.
Back Cover Text: These pages were written by one hand and many hearts … by separated spouses faithful to the sacrament because they are convinced this total gift of self is not an anachronism imposed by the Church to be accepted with patient resignation, but a path of sanctification lived out in the joyous paradox of the Gospel. This book, besides offering numerous points for reflection on the theme of separation, proposes a true and proper path subdivided into stages for groups of people who, living with the suffering of a spouses’ separation, wish to remain faithful to the sacrament of their marriage. Among the many suggested prayers and meditations, one in particular, the renewal of the “I do,” has captured the attention of many churches both at home and abroad.
