Bread and Wine is a collection of seventy-two readings spanning all the themes of Lent and Easter.There are poems, prayers, meditations, excerpts from sermons and essays and lengthy theological tomes.The authors come from all over the world, from all ages and times.There is Kahlil Gibran, an early 20th century Lebanese poet raised as a Maronite Catholic.There is George MacDonald, a Scottish fantasy author and minister in the 1800s.There is Ernesto Cardenal, a Nicaraguan poet and cultural activist.There is Walter J. Ciszek, a Jesuit priest who served within the Soviet Union.There is Edna Hong, a Kierkegaard scholar and translator as well as a novelist.There is Peter Kreeft, a contemporary philosophy professor at Boston College.The material is arranged under five main headings, and I'll give you a few examples from each one.Invitation~This section calls us to Come near to the Cross, Hear His words, See Ourselves, Repent, and then Go Forth. The first selection is a poem by Oscar Wilde, with that plaintive cry "How else but through a broken heart can the Lord Christ enter in?" Walter Wangerin speaks about Christ as the perfect Mirror, the one that terrifies and startles with its clarity- and yet heals us too. "This mirror is made of righteous flesh and of divinity- and this one loves me absolutely." Jean-Pierre de Caussade writes about surrender: "Everything is yours, everything is from you and for you. Mine is to be satisfied with your work..." Edna Hong describes the way Lent strips the soul and then Christ supplies His fullness.
