To be a Pilgrim explores a spirituality open to people of all ages and in every walk of life. Written in simple, and at time vivid, language, it is a collection of the Cardinals thoughts on the Christian life, the destination of which is eternal happiness with God.
Cardinal Basil Hume
CARDINAL GEORGE BASIL HUME (1923-1999) was Abbot of Ampleforth from 1963 until his appointment as Archbishop of Westminster in 1976; he remained Cardinal Archbishop of Westminster until his death from cancer in June 1999, when he was widely mourned both nationally and internationally. His many books include The Mystery of the Cross, The Mystery of the Incarnation and Basil in Blunderland.
No true Christian could fail to acquire from it better realisation of what God wants of us and what we want of Him.
Classical in its content, evangelical in its simplicity, directness and wonderful kindness.
