Today, we have a unique opportunity for you to win the new book Camerado, I Give You My Hand: How a Powerful Lawyer-Turned-Priest Is Changing the Lives of Men Behind Bars. This book was written by author Maura Poston Zagrans and features the life and mission of Father David T. Link, who is also Founding President Emeritus of the University of Notre Dame, Australia and Dean Emeritus of the University of Notre Dame Law School. Here’s a bit of information about this amazing chronicle:
For many years Dr. David T. Link helped young men and women prepare to become lawyers. After his wife died, and at a time in his life when most people retire, Dr. Link felt called to serve the Church and to aid the men that his profession normally put behind bars, ministering healing and forgiveness to murderers, thieves, and what many would call the least of society.
This is a book about the value of human life, and about the transformative power of friendship and compassion. Meeting Father Dave gives us hope that one person can make a difference and, through successive reinterpretations of his own life’s purpose, he makes the case for adding our own unique gifts to help the least of these, our brothers and sisters from all walks of life.
“Song of the Open Road” by Walt Whitman
Camerado, I give you my hand!
I give you my love more precious than money,
I give you myself before preaching or law;
Will you give me yourself? will you come travel with me?
Shall we stick by each other as long as we live?
Books such as Camerado, I Give You My Hand have vast potential to move beyond entertainment and inspiration. Reading about the amazing life of Fr. Link and his commitment to a true living of Gospel values helps each of us to see more clearly our own ability to transform the world around us.
