About the Author
We often hear that "suffering is a mystery." The cry of Albacete's heart shows us more: suffering is an encounter with the Mystery. May all who read this book have the courage to enter in.
-Christopher West, ThD, President, Theology of the Body Institute
Monsignor Albacete reflects upon suffering as part of "the drama of personal life that is oriented toward transcendence." Cry of the Heart is meaty, challenging, redemptive.
-Heather King, author, speaker, and arts and culture columnist for Angelus News
Having known Lorenzo since I was a seminarian, I had some sense of the suffering he endured in his own life. Cry of the Heart has not only helped me to understand my old friend more deeply, but through it Lorenzo has given me a way of approaching my own experiences with a renewed vision of true hope.
-William E. Lori, Archbishop of Baltimore
Pope Benedict XVI once mused that the modern world, beset by suffering, has increasingly become a Holy Saturday. In this profoundly moving book, Monsignor Lorenzo Albacete enters this Holy Saturday to plumb the mystery of human suffering and discovers within it something even more mysterious-the certainty of resurrection.
