I salute the author for a remarkable work. This religious fiction absolutely touched the chords of my soul, the place where my grateful love for our Lord vibrates. The content of The tears of Jesus resonates with my life, my personal search for the true Christ and his life, my search for his heart. I found him in my own life; and yes, I found the true Christ and his true church body in this volume!
My wife borrowed a book "Tears of Jesus" from another member of our church. Its title, Tears of Jesus, caught my eyes and I riffled through the pages. There were sentences written on the sleeve of the book.
A sister who feels nausea seeing a cross against her will. In midst of her agony, Jesus spoke to her.
Tears of Jesus by Peter Chavier is a moving and challenging mystery set in contemporary Rome. Father Yamamoto and Sister Theresa, a priest and nun, emerge as main characters in the story. Early in the narrative we learn of the clergy‘s concern over the spread among Catholics of a “Cross Immolation Syndrome,” symptoms manifested when they viewed a cross with the image of Jesus impaled upon it. Related to the spread of this “syndrome” were reports of incidents in which the holy object appears to have been desecrated. However further investigation reveals that the cross itself, not the image of Jesus, is the object of the suspected vandalism.
