Synopsis: Believers and non-believers alike recognize that the hours between Maundy Thursday and Easter Sunday speak of fundamental aspects of every person's experience. This time is the "Sabbath of History", the metaphor of reality poised between death and beauty, love and grief.
The Sabbath of History brings together the reflections of Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger on Holy Week and the paintings of American artist William Congdon, a leading exponent of Action Painting in the 50s and a convert to Catholicism. The result is a unique meditation on the human condition as well as an exploration of one artist's journey toward expression.
About the Author: On April 19, 2005, CARDINAL JOSEPH RATZINGER was elected POPE BENEDICT XVI and became the 264th successor to Peter as the "Vicar of Jesus Christ." He may well be the most accomplished theologian to be elected Pope in modern times. Beginning in 1981 he spent over 20 years as the Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, a role often depicted as the "defender of the faith." Cardinal Ratzinger was also President of the Pontifical Biblical Commission and of the Preparatory Commission that codified the new "Catechism of the Catholic Church," published in 1994.
