A guerra não é uma fatalidade, a paz não é um acidente. Enquanto alguns vêem a guerra como um aspecto universal e ancestral da natureza humana, outros argumentam que ela é apenas o resultado de circunstâncias sócio-culturais ou ecológicas específicas. Segundo Conway W. Henderson, uma fonte afirma que 14.500 guerras tiveram lugar entre 3500 AC e o final do século XX, custando 3,5 mil milhões de vidas, deixando apenas 300 anos de paz. Portanto, todos deveriam pelo menos pensar neste assunto, e estar preparados para se preocuparem directa ou indirectamente com esta questão, paz ou guerra.Show more

Published to coincide with Pope Francis's Year of Mercy and the Vatican's canonization of Mother Teresa, this new book of unpublished material by a humble yet remarkable woman of faith whose influence is felt as deeply today as it was when she was alive, offers Mother Teresa's profound yet accessible wisdom on how we can show mercy and compassion in our day-to-day lives. For millions of people from all walks of life, Mother Teresa's canonization is providentially taking place during Pope Francis's Extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy. This is entirely fitting since she is seen both inside and outside of the Church as an icon of God's mercy to those in need. Compiled and edited by Brian Kolodiejckuk, M.C., the postulator of Mother Teresa's cause for sainthood, A Call to Mercy presents deep yet accessible wisdom on how we can show compassion in our everyday lives. In her own words, Mother Teresa discusses such topics as: the need for us to visit the sick and the imprisoned the importance of honoring the dead and informing the ignorant the necessity to bear our burdens patiently and forgive willingly the purpose to feed the poor and pray for all the greatness of creating a "civilization of love" through personal service to others Featuring never before published testimonials by people close to Mother Teresa as well as prayers and suggestions for putting these ideas into practice, A Call to Mercy is not only a lovely keepsake, but a living testament to the teachings of a saint whose ideas are important, relevant and very necessary in the 21st century.Show more
Awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1979, Mother Teresa humbly accepted it on behalf of the poorest of the poor to whom she joyfully dedicated her life. Truly a saint for the 20th century, she taught compassion not only for the sick and destitute, but also for the lonely, neglected, and unappreciated who surround us every day. Among Mother Teresa’s concerns were those that plague modern Christians everywhere: abortion, child abuse and neglect, the lack of love in modern family life, and AIDS, which she called “the leprosy of the West.” She gave strength and inspiration to her Missionaries of Charity, and through them her joyful commitment to Christ continues on. The dual narration by Ruth Ann Phimister and George Guidall, as fervent as a prayer, inspires listeners with Mother Teresa’s simple yet profound message about the value and meaning of life. This diminutive, self-effacing nun’s call to love is a bright beacon of hope in an increasingly self-centered world.Show more

Published to coincide with the tenth anniversary of her death, Come Be My Light is an intimate portrait of a woman whose life and work continue to be admired by millions of people.Show more
