This acclaimed commentary on Saint Teresa of Avila's classic work, Way of Perfection, discusses the various forms of Christian prayer, with an emphasis on Teresa's meditation on the Our Father. The author, a renowned expert on Carmelite spirituality, includes many quotations from Saint Teresa and Saint John of the Cross, which have been conformed to the most current authorized translations. Teresa of Avila reformed the Carmelite order in the sixteenth century. Seeing Teresa in deep prayer, her first companions asked her to teach them how to pray. The apostles made the same request of Jesus: "Teach us to pray." Jesus answered by teaching the Our Father. Teresa responded to her sisters by writing Way of Perfection, which contains an extended commentary upon the Lord's Prayer. As Jesus did in his Sermon on the Mount, Teresa, in her Way of Perfection, first teaches the necessary dispositions for prayer before teaching the different kinds of prayer. Named a Doctor of the Church by Pope Paul VI in 1970, Teresa united not only prayer and the apostolate, but contemplation and the apostolate, for contemplation is a particular kind of prayer that tends toward the most sublime intimacy with our Lord.

From the award-winning, bestselling author of The Sound of Things Falling and Reputations, a brilliant collection of stories that showcases why he is one of the best writers—in any language—working today. Lovers on All Saints' Day is an emotional book that haunts, moves, and seduces. Juan Gabriel Vásquez, the brilliant novelist, now brings his keen eye and rich prose to the themes of love and memory in these seven powerful stories. Vásquez achieves an extraordinary unity of emotion with these fragmented lives. A Colombian writer is witness to a murder that will mark him forever. A woman sits alone in her house, waiting for her husband to return from an expedition to find wood for their stove, while he lies in another woman’s bed a few miles away, unable to heal the wound in his own marriage. In these stories, there are love affairs, revenge, troubled pasts, and tender moments that reveal a person’s whole history in a few sentences. Set in Europe (the scene of Vásquez’s own self-imposed exile from Latin America) and never before available in English, this collection evokes a singular mood and a tone, and showcase Vásquez’s hypnotic writing. Vásquez is a humane, deeply insightful writer, and these stories leave one feeling transformed from the experience of reading them, with a greater vision of humanity and society, a greater understanding of relationships and of love. From the Hardcover edition.

"Divine Intimacy" is undoubtedly the classic Carmelite work on meditation -- a book that helps one arrive at intimate union with God by the practice of considering holy truths. It is a book that shows how to Join preyer and action and put the Catholic doctrine on the spiritual life into practice daily. "Divine Intimacy" has been translated into all principal languages and has met with extraordinary success, bringing encouragement and spiritual profit to lay people as well as priests and religious. For each day of the year, Fr. Gabriel gives 1) a brief Introduction, 2) a two-part meditation, followed by 3) a "colloquy" -- holy acts of love, thanksgiving, petition, resolution, etc. addressed to Our Lord and based on the truths just meditated upon. About three pages are devoted to each day, so it reads quickly, and even the busiest person can use it regularly. The meditations for Sundays are based on the Sunday Gospel readings of the traditional liturgical calendar. Grounding his work on a firm Thomistic basis. Fr. Gabriel (1893-1953) draws from Sacred Scripture and teaching of the great Carmelite Saints, including St. John of the Cross, St. Teresa of Avila. St. Therese of the Child Jesus and Sister Elizabeth of the Trinity, His goal -- marvelously achieved -- is to cover the whole doctrine of the spiritual life in the course of a year. This is a lifetime book -- one that is conceived to be used each day and to be read over and over. Divine Intimacy imparts an absolutely Catholic view of life and prepares the reader for the greatest possible union with God this side of Heaven.

With expanding Irish, Swiss, French, and German immigrant populations, the state of Indiana evolved from individual explorers, trappers, hunters, and traders into family-focused communities of farmers and craftsmen. Emerging from the former Indiana Territory, the state's early population was in need of education, health care, and social services to assist young families, the poor, the infirm, and the elderly. These needs were frequently met by Catholic religious orders, including the Benedictines, Sisters of Providence, Franciscans, Daughters of Charity, and other established organizations of dedicated religious men and women.

Economos Antony Gabriel has had several close encounters with death that have affected him deeply. After fifty years of ministry, Father Antony, as he is still known, retired from Montreal St. George Church in 2015 after his own and his wifes health crises. This book is about how he came to grips with his own mortality as a wounded healer by offering comfort and healing to others suffering sickness, sorrow, grief, or bereavement. Needing to make sense of the terror, frustrations, and anger, he has written a vivid portrayal of his battle with cancer and the health-care bureaucracy as he attempted to continue. Readers will see echoes of their struggles with illness or other challenges and find wise counsel in some of his observations and rueful humor in others. The second part of the book is a reflection of what he learned himself and about himself. It is both philosophical and poetic by turn with wisdom distilled into short but powerful phrases that will stay with the reader. Religion is an important part of this book, but the book is not doctrinal. It is rather about a mans struggle to overcome often against himself and, through his faith, find acceptance and healing. Silence is the ultimate harmony in divinity, that is, God. For a brief moment, I enjoyed the ecstasy of this beauty!

One of the oldest settlements in Michigan, Monroe is a treasure trove of American history. Legacies of Native American cultures, French settlement, the War of 1812, the Civil War, and 19th-century progress still echo through its beautiful streets and structures. The Monroe area is nationally known as the site of the Battles and Massacre of the River Raisin, among the largest engagements of the War of 1812. But perhaps it is better known as the home of General George Armstrong Custer, the great Civil War hero who valiantly led Union troops to victory, only to perish at the Battle of Little Bighorn.This book uses rare images and historical insights to document and celebrate Monroe's early development, military legacy, legendary figures, and architectural splendor.

When Gabriel Santoro publishes his first book, a biography of a Jewish family friend who fled Germany for Colombia shortly before World War Two, it never occurs to him that his father will write a devastating review in a national newspaper. Why does he attack him so viciously? Do the pages of his book unwittingly hide some dangerous secret? As Gabriel sets out to discover what lies behind his father's anger, he finds himself undertaking an examination of the guilt and complicity at the heart of Colombian society, as one treacherous act perpetrated in those dark days returns with a vengeance half a century later.
