"The LORD God planted a garden in Eden, in the east; and there he put the man whom he had formed" (Gen. 2:8). From the very beginning of Scripture, key moments in God's plan of salvation have played out in gardens, from the Garden of Eden to the Garden of the Resurrection.

In The Gardens of God, Cardinal Arthur Roche reflects on these gardens as images of the spiritual life. The sorrow of Gethsemane, the joy of the empty tomb, the intimacy of the enclosed garden, and the hope of paradise all speak to different moments in the journey of faith. Initially developed as retreat talks for bishops and priests, The Gardens of God will also appeal to all the faithful, inviting them to again walk with God in the garden of the soul.
