Your spirit will exult, smile, and soar with the lyrical visionary saga “Jubilee of Jubilees” that unveils a hidden tapestry of interwoven events over past centuries. Years of Jubilee, the infrequent sabbatical year in the Judeo-Christian tradition, supply the framework to reveal the hidden beauty of special lives. With both heart-wrenching poignancy and humor, Russo’s unique and strong voice journeys the reader with Francis of Assisi to Rome on pilgrimage the early 13th century for the beginnings of a radical new way of life. Russo subsequently engages us through the centruries of Jubilee to see the magnificence of the tapestry’s pattern through vignettes in France, Italy, Portugal, Poland, and Israel; culminating in an unexpected event during the Great Jubilee Year of 2000 in Rome. Combining history and the deepest yearnings of hope, “Jubilee of Jubilees” is a spring in the wilderness and required reading for anyone that wants to understand why Pope Francis will open the door to a new Year of Jubilee on December 8th of 2015.
“Jubilee of Jubilees” is essential reading for armchair pilgrims unable to travel for physical or economic reasons.
