Night Prayer (paperback)

NIGHT PRAYER
from the Office of the Dead
By Br. Bernard Seif


Sixth book in the Office of the Dead series: Brother Francis O'Neil, by profession a clinical psychologist and doctor of Chinese medicine, has spent much of his twenty-first century life studying the work of his sixteenth-century monastic founders, Jane de Chantal and Francis de Sales. It is during one of his many academic and charitable trips to China, far from his home and life in Pennsylvania, when the unthinkable happens. Four-hundred-year-old ancient parchments have mysteriously come into his hands. An avid researcher and historian, O'Neil knows these parchments are special, and on closer inspection, he realizes that they may be authentic texts penned by de Chantal and de Sales. With his new acquisition, O'Neil also receives a strong feeling of foreboding that transcends time.

Something happened to de Chantal and de Sales. They were involved in an ancient mystery, as yet unsolved. Perhaps, O'Neil-who knows their work so well-will unravel the mystery of his spiritual mother and father. He's good at solving puzzles, but how good is he at staying alive, as the parchments seem to bring danger to his doorstep? Will the ancient pages end in murder abroad? Or will the danger follow him back home to Pennsylvania? 132 pages, paperback.

In this fourth book in the Office of the Dead series, Abbot Francis lets Pennsylvania and his responsibilities at the Salesian Monastery fade into the background of his mind.

VIGILS
from the Office of the Dead
By Br. Bernard Seif


By popular request, Chantal, David, Abbot Francis, and other characters from Office of the Dead are back. In this second in the series, their personalities and adventures are presented in a deeper and richer context. Openness to letting life unfold and, in a sense, dancing with it, usually resolves most mysteries sooner or later. It is the "later" part that is often the real challenge in life. Monastic life is no exception. The schedule of a monastery revolves around the communal prayer marking the various phases of the day and night. These liturgical celebrations, known as the Liturgy of the Hours, anchor the monastic with a certain spiritual stability as he or she lives the mystery. Death has no such predictable timetable.

Office of the Dead (paperback)

OFFICE OF THE DEAD
By Br. Bernard Seif


If you enjoy monastic murder mysteries in the spirit of the famous Brother Cadfael PBS series you will delight in Office of the Dead because the action takes place in contemporary times, rather than the middle ages, the reader is easily drawn into the dynamics of the plot and can identify with the characters readily. A bit of romance coupled with ecclesiastical tensions makes this story crackle with excitement.
