When Pat McMahon risks the love of the mother who raised him by seeking out the mother who gave him away, he transforms from a mild-mannered engineer into a frenetic detective. After he overcomes the challenges of existential angst, bureaucratic roadblocks, and unemployment, the phone call to his first mother releases a torrent of long-buried feelings. During a sometimes turbulent long-distance unfolding, he absorbs her shocking revelations and comes out as gay once again. Their eventual reunion creates a profound bond, even as he navigates waves of conflicting emotions, merges past with present, and embarks on a new future rooted in truth and insights into the universal quest for identity and human connection. He is Becoming Patrick.
A handsomely produced book which makes available scholarly presentations on the Carmelite Rule that were delivered at a conference held in Lisieux, France, July 4-7, 2005. The conference and book commemorates the 800th anniversary in 2007 of the giving by St. Albert of Jerusalem of the Carmelite Formula vitae that became the official Rule of the Order in 1247. Twenty of the twenty-two essays are by OCARM scholars. Two are by OCD scholars - a priest and a nun. One essay is by a lay scholar. Thirteen of the contributions are in English, seven are in Italian, and one each in Spanish and Portuguese. The essays explore the Carmelite Rule from the historical, hermeneutical, exegetical, biographical, contextual, comparative, spiritual, as well as other perspectives.
There has recently been much discussion, indeed argument, regarding the suitability of the Rule of St. Albert for the Carmelite Laity. In the book, the author, former praeses of the Institutum Carmelitanum in Rome and lecturer in Carmelite history and spirituality, presents a powerful defense of the suitability of Albert's Pattern for Life for all Carmelites-- laity and religious alike. In both settting a historical context for the Rule and providing a practical commentary for the laity, the author demonstrates that it is adherence to the Rule that defines a Carmelite and gives each a Carmelite identity.
