This essential formation resource
is a newly updated edition of the original authored in 1991 by Sister Juliana
Casey, a member of the Sisters, Servants of the Immaculate Heart of Mary of
Monroe, Mich. Food for the Journey offers the story of Catholic
health care as a sacrament of Christ’s healing mercy in our day. It provides
leaders with insights into the relationship of the health care ministry of the
Catholic Church, the mission and ministry of Jesus Christ, the social teaching
of the Church and health care for those persons who are poor and vulnerable by
way of tangible examples and easy to understand theological concepts.
While the text of the 2013 edition
of Food for the Journey
remains the same as the original, the look
has been updated. It is now available in several formats (see below) with the audio books being
narrated by Sr. Juliana.
A set of 5 note cards featuring the chapter cover images in the CHA resource,
Food for the Journey: Theological Foundations of Catholic Healthcare
Ministry are available here.
