WILL I SEE MY PET IN HEAVEN?
(children's edition)


This charming book is the children's edition of Friar Jack Wintz's bestseller I Will See You in Heaven. It comforts and explains to children that God loves and cares for all creatures, including and especially those we are close to.

"We don't know everything God has planned for us in heaven. But there are many good reasons for you to believe that your dog, cat, fish, hamster, snake, ferret, iguana—or any other creature that God created—will go to heaven when it dies. God has given us clues and hints in stories from the Bible and in the teachings of my favorite saint, Francis of Assisi..."
Friar Jack, OFM

Offerings of the Spirit (hardcover)

OFFERINGS OF THE SPIRIT
Tributes to Brother Thomas


For many years -- nearly two decades -- Brother Thomas has created a body of work in the form of plates, bowls, chargers. Every two years new works would emerge and would be placed alongside that which had come before. These basic forms have become a collection and a means of experiencing one part of his extraordinary search for the Beautiful. After 50 years of life as a potter and 20 years as a beloved participant in the life of Pucker Gallery (Boston, Massachusetts), the Gallery wanted to honor the man, the work and his spirit. A professor has his students and disciples to prepare a celebratory collection of articles; a potter has a wide range of colleagues, friends, and admirers. It is to this diverse body of voices that the Gallery turned for their "offering" to Brother Thomas, presented in this volume, Offerings of the Spirit.

This is the Day (hardcover)

THIS IS THE DAY
Work and Words of Brother Thomas


The first Book of Days from Brother Thomas -- Celebrate the Days -- was so wonderfully received, it demanded another. Brother Thomas' correspondence remains a resource of wisdom: Biblical, prophetic and wise. His perceptions about life, art, beauty and the spirit continue to nourish.

This is the day the Lord has made, We greet it with Joy and Gladness - Psalms 118:24

The affirmation of the gift of each day is reinforced by the following from the morning prayer service: How great is our Joy! How good is our portion! How pleasant our lot! How beautiful our heritage! Brother Thomas' works and words remind us of how blessed we are.

Benedict's Dharma (hardcover)

BENEDICT'S DHARMA:
Buddhists Reflect on
the Rule of St. Benedict (hardcover)
Edited by Patrick Henry
Forward by David Steindl-Rast, OSB


Saint Benedict's Rule is a set of guidelines that has governed Christian monastic life since the sixth century. Those who live according to the Rule, which regulates daily life in a monastery, regard it as the bedrock of their lives and feel great affection for its writer, a monk whose humility and extraordinary insight into human nature are legendary. The Rule has fascinated laypeople and monastics alike, including Buddhist monks and nuns who are intrigued by the similarities between their traditions and those of their Christian counterparts.

This book is the fruit of dialogue between Christian and Buddhists that began at the Gethsemani Encounter in 1996. Besides the reflections by four distinguished Buddhists, Norman Fischer, Joseph Goldstein, Judith Simmer-Brown and Ven. Yifa, there is a conclusion by Brother David Steindl-Rast, O.S.B. For the sake of ongoing dialogue the Rule of St. Benedict translated by Abbot Patrick Barry, O.S.B., has been included. The editor is Patrick Henry, Ph.D., Executive Director of the Ecumenical Institute at St. John's Collegeville, Minnesota. Hardcover, 223 pages.
