New Translations of Cardinal Basil Hume: A Pilgrim’s Search for God

We are pleased to announce that Sister Gertrude’s book, Cardinal Basil Hume: A Pilgrim’s Search for God (Gracewing, 2019) is now available in Dutch and French. The Dutch edition is under the title, Kardinaal Basil Hume: Een Pelgrim Die God Zoekt (halewijn/Adveniat, 2020); the French edition, Cardinal Basil Hume: Un pèlerin à la recherche de Dieu(Saint-Léger Éditions, 2019). The book is the fruit of Sister Gertrude’s doctoral studies at the Pontifical University of Saint Thomas Aquinas, also known as the Angelicum, where she earned a Doctorate in Sacred Theology in 2015. Of note is that on May 18, 2020, the Angelicum together with the whole Church celebrated the 100-year anniversary of the birth of the Angelicum’s most illustrious alumnus, Saint John Paul II. Pope Saint John Paul II, pray for us!

What follows are words from Cardinal Basil Hume, the last quotation of Sister Gertrude’s book, the English edition available through (see the Redwoods website for a link). The original source is Cardinal Hume’s Towards a Civilization of Love: Being Church in Today’s World (Hodder & Stoughton, 1995), p. 96. 

We are made in the image and likeness of God and there is in each of us a yearning—consciously recognized or not—for the Father and source of our being. 

We zijn gemaakt naar het beeld en de gelijkenis van God en in eld van ons is er een verlangen—bewust of unbewust—naar de Vader, de bron van ons bestaan.

Nous sommes faits à l’image et à la ressemblance de Dieu et il se trouve en chacun de nous (qu’elle soit consciemment reconnue ou non) une aspiration au Père et source de notre être.
