This anthology pays tribute to Allan Berube (1946-2007), a self-taught historian who was a pioneer in the study of lesbian and gay history in the United States.

In Cry of Wonder, Gerard W. Hughes, author of God of Surprises, encourages readers to explore their own human experience, the unique doorway opening each of us out into the mystery of our present existence. In our time, such attention to mystery is considered counter-cultural and subversive of law and order. The truth of this observation becomes very clear to us if we give attention to our own felt reactions to the events of our lives. The purpose of this book is to focus our attention on this inner conflict, because it can reveal to us a vision of the transformation into which we are all now being invited in all that we are experiencing in every moment of our existence.

THE most ancient special devotion of Christians is doubtless that of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, the Son of God. The holy Sacraments and the other objects of devotion did not yet exist, when the Blessed Virgin Mary found her delight in worshiping the most Sweet Heart of her Jesus; already did Holy Joseph clasp that Heart to his bosom; even then were the Shepherds and the Magi, Simeon and Anna, the Apostles and the Disciples attracted to It and by It: they longed to show to It the affection and love of their hearts. But after Jesus had called upon all men to learn, “that He is meek and humble of Heart;” after He had drawn from the treasury of His Heart that best of all gifts, the Sacrament of the Most Blessed Eucharist; lastly, after He had willed that, upon the Cross, His Heart should be opened, and continue open, as a place of refuge for all; then was devotion to His Divine Heart wonderfully increased.

The heart has always been a symbol used to express emotion, hurt, rejection, human understanding, and above all, love. The Church, in its devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, wants to waken us to a God who has hungered and suffered, known joy and sorrow--a God with a heart. The thirty heart-centered meditations in this book dramatically illustrate our need to turn to the heart of Jesus as a way of overcoming modern disregard for life, justice and peace. Shows us that veneration of the Sacred Heart is more than a pious practice. It is a devotion deeply rooted in Scripture and tradition. This devotion is needed today to bring us to the deep, overflowing love of the heart of Jesus--the hope of reparation and the source of redemption for our world.
