The political joke is as old as politics - a classic form of popular social commentary that skewers even as it amuses. This book brings together some of the most mordantly funny examples of the genre: the jokes that proliferated (privately, of course) in Eastern Europe under the Warsaw Pact. Recalled by a Romanian Jewish emigre, these jokes not only form a sampling of political humour, they also offer a insight into the conditions that gave rise to the wave of reform and revolution which took place in that part of the world.
And this event, in being the centre of the whole of Christianity, is the focus of that Christian love which in Scripture is called agape. Agape is, further, the term used for Christ's willingness to sacrifice Himself and die for our ...

Since 1965 the number of priests in the United States has fallen by some 30,000. But over that same time period, more than 30,000 laypeople have come into the employ of parishes and other Church institutions. Laypeople have stepped up to serve in a variety of new ministries, and they are relieving their pastors of many administrative burdens, enabling them to focus on their proper priestly duties. Lay teachers now outnumber nuns, brothers, and priests in Catholic schools by at least 19 to 1. In the history of the Church, laypeople have never been asked to do so much. William E. Simon, Jr. and Michael Novak call attention to this great shift in Living the Call. The first part of the book tells the personal stories of nine faithful laypeople now serving the Church in new and diverse ways. Simon and Novak’s insight is that more and more who work in the Church feel the need to shape their lives in a new way, matched to their different needs and adjusted to the new base of knowledge about the world with which they begin. In response to this need, the second part of Living the Call offers practical examples and reflections on a number of themes, including entering into the presence of God and learning different forms of prayer, reading that refreshes the mind and deepens the soul, and the graces of the sacraments and how being a spouse contributes to holiness.

This book is special, unusual, but not formidable. You can hardly fully read it without the bible; so it is designed to attract Christian world. Because of the long-standing Church controversies about "being under grace", and "not under the law, there are confl icting ideas of what bornagain Christians' obligations to the Lord are supposed to be if you are under grace. This book attempts to clarify this, in details, and should settle the matter for true truth seekers for good. Th is is one of the highlights of the book because this matter touches, not only life, but eternal life too. It points out (not with proud holier- than- thou attitude) areas of life Christians need examine & improve upon, with God's help- but it is not a book of doom and gloom. With every such area attention is drawn to, there are way outs and exhortation of what can be done. - pointing to God, (not the book's author) for the Answers. The author hopes you will not hate the book, but welcome it as Exhortations from a loving sister to her well-beloved fellow Christians, and prays it serves as ladder to Newness of life in the Lord Jesus Christ. The book enhances the loving kindness of God to us; and gently tries to wake the Church up, so we stop incurring God's anger, and start seeking His Favour. Another highlight of this book is the "Call" for united Fasting-Prayers crying out to God, humbly and genuinely for the Holy Spirit- anointing and heaven-sent Revival; to help us truly repent, be forgiven and be renewed. Thus seeking for His compassion, it is certain that our Saviour and Lord will in no wise cast us out.

There is more to the human origins, development, intelligence, and civilization than the epic debate Creationism versus Evolution, simply because there is more to the human condition than what authorities and ideologies determine you to accept today. Therefore, when you study the human origins, you have to expand your research beyond the moment when the first humans detached themselves from the firmament or previous species, since there are other significant events in Humanity’s lifespan and achievement defining its timeline. You have to study everything, otherwise you risk understanding these significant events only from simplistic empirical or ideological perspectives, and so you end up learning what you already know while following the crowd throughout unending debates. What you want to learn is the truth, since you are already familiar with all theories, beliefs, and debates regarding the human origins. When you seek to understand the human origins, you seek to understand the origins of life, the nature and origins of this world we call Reality, the nature of the human higher self and intelligence, the origins and debut of human consciousness and intelligent thinking, along with all details related to the Creator of this world, to Life, and to Humankind. While it is relevant to know how all these affect you personally, how they affect your family, your genetic line, and your nation, how your family and genetic line originate, where and how it happened, under what circumstances, and with what status and privileges for you, for your family, for your nation and for the humankind, and this is exactly what we cover throughout this book, in all details and from all perspectives. This book studies the human origins, along with the origins of life, human intelligence, human species, human development, human society, human current civilization and various past civilizations of Earth, integrating humans, their origins, and their original conditions in an elaborate comprehensive model.

“How should we live in this house of God? We know that the way a building is shaped also helps in determining the way those within it live and relate. We are indeed formed by what we form. Qualities such as integrity, hospitality, humanity and beauty in a place will enable its dwellers to live lives in which such qualities are evident. The way we understand who we are and how we live will be reflected in our places and vice versa. Our places become bearers of meaning and memory.” —From Chapter 1In Living in the House of God, Margaret Malone draws on her study of and research on the Rule of Saint Benedict to show the ways in which this ancient rule can illuminate modern life. The broad gamut of topics this book examines—from Benedictine life as sacrament to Augustine’s influence on Benedict to obedience and the art of listening, among others—is itself a witness to the generous flexibility of the Rule, as Benedict proposes a way of life that truly corresponds to the deepest needs of the whole of human nature.
