Pope Saint John Paul II declared that the great challenge for Christians today is to become "the home and school of communion." St. Teresa Benedicta (Edith Stein) in her life and her writings, is a sure guide to attaining the communion for which every human heart longs. This work considers St. Teresa's life and writings in the context of the "spirituality of communion." As a philosopher she was directed towards attaining communion with the Truth, and she discovered that Truth was a Person, Jesus Christ. As a Carmelite nun she gave up everything for communion with him. Dr. Alice von Hildebrand, in the foreword, says Edith Stein's message "is above her time" and that the author, Sister M. Regina van den Berg, "is well qualified to write such a book." Sister Regina explores in detail Edith Stein's theory of empathy as developed in her doctoral dissertation, as well as her theory of community. Sister Regina has also used a number of Edith Stein's writings which, until this work, have not yet been available in English translation. Each chapter explores an aspect of 'communion,' richly revealing how Edith Stein, "a Jew who became a philosopher. . . a convert to Catholicism who became a Carmelite nun and crowned her life with martyrdom." Stein's work "provides insights that can help us grow in the spirituality of communion, first by presenting to us the truth about the human person's nature and vocation and then by showing us how we can arrive at a spirituality of communion in the various aspects of life."

Roman Catholicism stands at a crossroads, a classic ''best of times, worst of times'' moment. On the one hand, the Catholic Church remains by far the largest branch of the worldwide Christian family, and is growing at a remarkable clip. Yet the Church has also been rocked by a series of scandals related to the sexual abuse of minors by clergy, and, even more devastating, the cover-up by the Church hierarchy. The decade-long crisis has taken a massive financial toll, but the blow to both the internal morale and the external moral standing of the Church has been even steeper. Today, the Church has enormous residual strength and exciting future prospects, but also faces steep internal and external challenges. The question of ''whither Catholicism'' is of vital public relevance, for believers and non-believers alike. In The Catholic Church: What Everyone Needs to Know, John L. Allen, Jr., one of the world's leading authorities on the Vatican, offers an authoritative and accessible guide to the past, present, and future of the Church. This updated edition includes a new chapter on the resignation of Pope Benedict XVI, the election of Pope Francis, and his extraordinary tenure thus far.

At times, in my lifetime, I have had a hunger to write. When I was a teenager, I would sit on the porch at the house (it wasn’t that old then) and write poems. I Have been writing songs for years. I have enclosed a lot of them with my Morning Writing. My little sister, Barbara, and I, use to sit on the porch banister and sing. We even, Use to perform on old saw dust piles. Our cousin, Ellen, use to climb up the saw dust Pile and perform with us. I really didn’t think I could write a Devotional Book, but felt, I was suppose to try. The inspiration came from someone higher than me. He gives me Strength, Hope and Joy. When the presence of the Lord, closes in, I feel as if, I could still climb, a Saw Dust pile.
