In Your Eyes I See My Words, Volume 2 contains Pope Francis's homilies and speeches spanning from 2005 to 2008. Continuing what began in the first volume of this three-volume publication, Volume 2 shows Archbishop Bergoglio's growth as a pastor and a theologian/scholar in the midst of his people. At the same time, it shows him emerging as an international voice calling for changes in the way the Church carries out its ministry and its educational task on behalf of children, youth, adults, and church ministers. In his homilies from Christmas, Easter, and especially in his response to the tragic fire and deaths of 194 people at the nightclub Republica Cromanon, we see Bergoglio speak passionately to his parishioners, challenging them with equal portions of tenderness and righteous anger. Perhaps uniquely, we also watch as his audiences, prominence, and influence grow globally, foreshadowing who he will become in 2013 when he is elected Pope. On the larger national and international scale, Bergoglio addresses various conferences, such as the Argentina Press Association and the Episcopal Conference of Argentina of which he was elected President in 2005 and served the maximum possible term of six years. We see and read as his work takes him outside his country to Rome (2007) at the Pontifical Commission for Latin America; to Brasil (2007), where his presentation on the Crisis of Civilization and Culture at the Fifth CELAM Conference ends up shaping much of the Aparecida Conclusions; and finally, to Quebec (2008) as he speaks at the Forty-Ninth International Eucharistic Congress. All told, In Your Eyes I See My Words, Volume 2 is a glimpse into a period of time in which Archbishop Bergoglio grows immensely in thought, reflection, and action, laying the groundwork for the mature, thoughtful, and beloved Pope Francis he has come to be known as around the world.
Rose de la Hunt is a lover of beauty, word and symbol, and an artist of life. A mother, foster-mother, grandmother, lover, listener and friend. A lifelong seeker, spiritual explorer, ‘quiet revolutionary’ and pioneer, her magical, challenging, at times painful, life-odyssey, and impassioned Love-quest has led her ever deeper into her own heart-knowing, and into the heart of the mysteries of Love.
A social science graduate from the University of Cape Town, for ten intensive years she became involved in overseeing and co-ordinating the services provided by a large 24-hour crisis counselling centre in the city. Then she initiated a small experimental centre that rapidly expanded into the Wellstead: a unique, groundbreaking, inclusive, vibrant, dynamic, multi-faceted venture and venue, networking and resource centre – its open doors welcoming, embracing and serving a great new wave of seekers and explorers during an exhilarating period of awakening consciousness and transition in South Africa and the world. For seventeen years she simultaneously served as editor of Odyssey magazine, South Africa’s first national pioneering, holistic and universal journal – a magazine with soul.
Her own experiential living odyssey was deepened and greatly enriched by her unexpected involvement in two different ‘mystery schools’, at different times, learning from the masters of universal wisdom and being set alight by their living Love-Fire. When a health crisis halted her active service-work in the outer world, she became a free-spirited, creative and contemplative mystic, often at her cottage in the garden of Temenos in McGregor, later befriending cancer; being drawn yet deeper into the heart of Love, its mysteries and dazzling revelations; and experiencing directly for herself the reality, wonder and ecstasy of immersion in Love’s sacred Fire.
She writes openly of the unfolding adventure of her personal, intimate and sacred Love-odyssey; of the interplay between her inner and outer life and experiences; and of the hidden treasures unveiled and revealed in this book which have been described as “extraordinary and profound”
Shortly after the Civil War ended, David Power Conyngham, an Irish Catholic journalist and war veteran, began compiling the stories of Catholic chaplains and nuns who served during the war. His manuscript, Soldiers of the Cross, is the fullest record written during the nineteenth century of the Catholic Church's involvement in the war, as it documents the service of fourteen chaplains and six female religious communities, representing both North and South. Many of Coyngham's chapters contain new insights into the clergy during the war that are unavailable elsewhere, either during his time or ours, making the work invaluable to Catholic and Civil War historians. The introduction contains over a dozen letters written between 1868 and 1870 from high-ranking Confederate and Union officials, such as Confederate General Robert E. Lee, Union Surgeon General William Hammond, and Union General George B. McClellan, who praise the church's services during the war. Chapters on Fathers William Corby and Peter P. Cooney, as well as the Sisters of the Holy Cross, cover subjects relatively well known to Catholic scholars, yet other chapters are based on personal letters and other important primary sources that have not been published prior to this book. Unpublished due to Conyngham's untimely death, Soldiers of the Cross remained hidden away in an archive for more than a century. Now annotated and edited so as to be readable and useful to scholars and modern readers, this long-awaited publication of Soldiers of the Cross is a fitting presentation of Conyngham's last great work.

Joining her husband in the fight to create a home out of
a rugged stretch of sagebrush, rattlesnakes, and sand
in Eastern Oregon, Jane Kirkpatrick uneasily relinquishes
the security of a professional career; the convenience of
electricity, running water, and a phone line; and, perhaps
most daunting, the pleasures of sporting a professional
manicure. But the pull of the land is irresistible, and the

Middle East. An extremist faction of Islam bombs a church during a
service. The one door in the back isn't big enough for five hundred

'An authoritative and brilliantly told account of the life of one of the world's greatest – and most famous – military leaders' Peter Frankopan
Much is known about Basil of Caesarea (329-379) - a Greek Bishop in what is now Turkey. A thoughtful theologian, he was instrumental in the formation of the Nicene Creed and fought a growing heresy, Arianism, which had found converts even in those in high positions of state. In the face of such a threat he showed courage, wisdom and complete confidence in God - without which, the Church would not be what it is today.
Born on the small Greek island of Melos, Joseph Georgirenes became a monk on Mount Athos and was consecrated as Archbishop of Samos in 1666. Five years later he left his diocese and travelled to Europe, visiting Rome, Paris, London and Oxford. Scholars such as Antoine Galland in Paris and Thomas Smith in Oxford invited this Greek Orthodox priest to take part in their theological discussions. Until now, Georgirenes has been best known for having established the first Greek Orthodox church in London in Soho, and for publishing a detailed account of the condition and practices of the Orthodox church living under Ottoman rule. This booklet - A Description of the Present State of Samos, Nicaria, Patmos and Mount Athos - was published in London in 1677 and is republished here for the first time in England. Caught up in the Popish Plot, Georgirenes left England in 1682 and it was not known what happened to him. For the first time, however, this biography reveals the extraordinary further adventures of this much-travelled priest.
