THE GIRL WHO LEARNED HOW TO KNEEL

Author: Patricia McCarthy,  CND

Etty Hillesum, a young Dutch woman of Jewish origin who died in Auschwitz. Initially far from God, she found Him looking deep inside herself and wrote: 'there is a well very deep inside of me. And God is in the well. Sometimes I can reach Him; more often stone and sand cover him: then God is buried. We must dig Him up again.' In her scattered and restless life, she finds God in the middle of the great tragedy of the twentieth century, the Shoah. This young fragile and dissatisfied woman, transfigured by faith, becomes a woman full of love and inner peace, able to say: 'I live in constant intimacy with God'." This book recounts the moving story of the conversion, faith, and ultimate martyrdom of Etty Hillesum.

THE UNBEARABLE WHOLENESS of BEING

Author: Ilia Delio, OSF

God, Evolution, and the power of Love

With effective mentoring by Pierre Teihard de Chardin, Ilia Delio has constructed a convincing case for love as the source and goal of the evolutionary process that makes it ever more clear that we need to become increasingly conscious of ourselves as"love creatures". In this way of being we may become healers of violence.
