A Touch of the Gardener's Hand: You Have Leukemia by Fr. Colum Power, SHM.
“This is a truly astonishing book. It is autobiographical but it's so much more than an autobiography. It is a conversion story, but it's so much more than the story of Father Colum's personal conversion. It is a book about the trials and challenges of being diagnosed with leukemia, but it's so much more than a self-help book for those facing similar trials and challenges. It is a deeply spiritual book that engages the perennial issue of suffering…but it´s so much more than a meditation on the crosses that we are all called to bear. Indeed, one of the most astonishing things about this book is that it almost defies description…
For those facing the darkness of contemporary life, or the dread of serious sickness or suffering, this slim volume will serve as a candle to light the way. The way that it lights is the Way of the Cross, and the Way of the Cross is itself the light that makes our burdens light. This is the very crux of the paradox that this paradoxical book illuminates.” -Extract from the Foreword by Joseph Pearce.
