In 1963, following 23 years of hard labor and abuse in Soviet prison camps, Walter J. Ciszek, S.J., finally returned to America. Had he come back a bitter man, or a man of diminished faith, it would have been hard to fault him. But he didn’t. For the remainder of his years, until his death in 1984, his grace, faith, and wisdom touched everyone who came into contact with him. This book is a collection of previously unpublished writings on his post-imprisonment life and thoughts. These include articles he wrote, speeches he delivered at retreats, letters to people he was counseling, and interviews with individuals who knew him personally. They show a man unbroken by all that he had endured and eager to share God’s love with others. Paper.
