From Mule Back to Super Jet with the Gospel
Originally published in 1962, this is the fascinating account of Brother Marshall Keeble’s missionary journey to Africa with Brother Lucien Palmer in 1960, including a visit to the Holy Land, Palestine. “This was Brother Keeble’s greatest missionary journey for the Lord, and he has made many journeys. On this trip he preached with great power. His influence was felt and it will live on in Africa, as he now has sons and daughters in the Gospel in that far away land, and through them the work of our Lord will continue.[...] “With great joy the experiences had by Brother Keeble on this journey have been written, and he hopes you will find much pleasure in this narrative. May it cause you to have a great increase of faith to use the jet age to God’s glory in advancing his kingdom in every nation of the world.”—Lucien Palmer, Preface

Living the Mass

release date: Apr 01, 2016
Living the Mass
Living the Mass presents the Holy Eucharist as the paschal mystery, the three divine Persons give themselves to us in love through the Mass as the ongoing work of redemption, and God is calling us to participate in that great work. We can live the Mass in everyday life by professing Christ, growing in virtue, overcoming sinful tendencies, increasing in knowledge of God, and exercising faith, hope, and love. This book shows how the Mass is the source and summit of the Christian life, showing God's self-giving love for us by what God has done and is doing for us, encouraging the reader to imitate that love in response throughout their life. "Read this account of a contemplative of Our Lady of Gethsemani gazing on the gift of the Holy Eucharist. Seeing the "self-giving love" of Jesus, Brother Christopher moves the reader from gratitude to conversion to joy." — Archbishop Joseph E. Kurtz, Archbishop of Louisville

Gods and Garments

release date: Nov 30, 2016
Gods and Garments
Textiles comprise a vast and wide category of material culture and constitute a crucial part of the ancient economy. Yet, studies of classical antiquity still often leave out this important category of material culture, partly due to the textiles themselves being only rarely preserved in the archaeological record. This neglect is also prevalent in scholarship on ancient Greek religion and ritual, although it is one of the most vibrant and rapidly developing branches of classical scholarship. The aim of the present enquiry is, therefore, to introduce textiles into the study of ancient Greek religion and thereby illuminate the roles textiles played in the performance of Greek ritual and their wider consequences. Among the questions posed are how and where we can detect the use of textiles in the sanctuaries, and how they were used in rituals including their impact on the performance of these rituals and the people involved. Chapters centre on three themes: first, the dedication of textiles and clothing accessories in Greek sanctuaries is investigated through a thorough examination of the temple inventories. Second, the use of textiles to dress ancient cult images is explored. The examination of Hellenistic and Roman copies of ancient cult images from Asia Minor as well as depictions of cult images in vase-painting in collocation with written sources illustrates the existence of this particular ritual custom in ancient Greece. Third, the existence of dress codes in the Greek sanctuaries is addressed through an investigation of the existence of particular attire for ritual personnel as well as visitors to the sanctuaries with the help of iconography and written sources. By merging the study of Greek religion and the study of textiles, the current study illustrates how textiles are, indeed, central materialisations of Greek cult, by reason of their capacity to accentuate and epitomize aspects of identity, spirituality, position in the religious system, by their forms as links between the maker, user, wearer, but also as key material agents in the performance of rituals and communication with the divine.

Ghostwriters
"You know, Tom Mankiewicz lived in 1942 to 2010 and his films are - The Deep in 1977, The spy who loved me in1977, Superman in1978, Moonraker in1979, and Superman II in 1980. In June 2012 interview, Robert Crane, who co-wrote Mankiewicz's autobiography My Life as a Mankiewicz in 2012, said that I think script doctoring was an in road for him. People had liked what they'd seen with the Bond films, especially the dialogue. I think that caught the attention of agents and studio heads, and they said, 'I want Mankiewicz to come in here and work on this project.' You know, he spent a lot of time at Warner Brothers and Universal working on scripts." Natalia said.

Skin in HIV
HIV infection involves all systems of our body and diseases manifest in atypical and severe forms leading to lot of morbidity and mortality. Skin being the largest organ of the body and with mucous membranes, it is the main portal of HIV infection. There is a lot of scope for research in the field of HIV and AIDS, and there is a need for an updated literature that would throw a light on the efficient diagnosis and management of cutaneous manifestations in HIV disease. Hence we are bringing out this eBook which is a comprehensive literature on HIV and its various cutaneous manifestations in its entirety. In this eBook we have provided extensive data and information on various skin related infections, papulosquamous disorders, disorders of vasculature, pruritic papular eruptions, neoplasias, adverse drug reactions and other hair, nail, oral and ocular associated disorders in HIV. The work has been sufficiently researched and contributed by experts in this field. Clinical photographs and extensive scientific literature will enhance the knowledge and confidence of the readers particularly clinicians and postgraduates to efficiently diagnose and manage cutaneous diseases in HIV infected patients. We acknowledge the work and sincere efforts of all the contributors who have made this project to happen. Sincere thanks to Dr. Eswari L and Dr. Shwetha S for their support and help in bringing out this edition. Thanks to my spouse and daughters for their encouragement and support and especially to the publishers without whom this work would go unnoticed. We hope that this conscious effort will benefit the readers and in turn the people living with HIV- AIDS at large.

Unquiet Vigil

release date: Oct 01, 2014
Unquiet Vigil
Br. Paul Quenon, OSCO, has assembled a collection of his poems seasoned through five decades of living a monastic life. These are litanies of life, work, patience, love and prayer. “These poems pinpoint the tensions inherent in a spiritual life. The self must be present and yet the self must be willing to be negated. One seeks knowledge but also freedom from knowledge. One must be at home with what is said through silence. These are some of the mysteries of faith and the words of these poems invite me into them. By reading, we partake of these words and much more. It is a joy to have this book.” -Maurice Manning, author of The Common Man, finalist for the Pulitzer Prize in poetry, and The Gone and the Going Away “The poems of Unquiet Vigil rise out of a more intense experience of reality, evoke aspects of that reality not universally acknowledged, and re-express them in exquisite and economical language.” -Michael Casey, OCSO, author of Stranger to the City Born in West Virginia, Br. Paul Quenon, OCSO, entered the Trappists in 1958 at the Abbey of Gethsemani in Kentucky, where Thomas Merton was his Novice Master. He has been publishing poems and photographs for the last twenty years.
