The Scent of Jasmine: Reflections for Peace in Everyday Life
Peace of God's gift to us expressed fully in the person of Jesus Christ. This volume encourages readers to lay claim to Christ's promise of peace, to make each day an experience of God and an experience of the gift of peace. A practical book, it gives facts, raises questions and blends the liturgical cycle with the secular cycle of civic observances and recurring yearly events. This linking of faith and daily life makes the book a useful tool for all who take the Gospel seriously, especially teachers, directors of adult education and those involved in RCIA. The 12 chapters of the book mirror the 12 months of the year, and focus on key solemnities and modern events - such as the assasination of Oscar Romero and the bombing of Nagasaki - that urgently remind us of the need for harmony. Short questions for reflection are useful for peace action and faith groups, as well as for individual readers, to help put ideas into action.

Of Passion and Folly: A Scriptural Foundation for Peace
Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you. Jesus' words are clear. Yet for centuries we as Church and as individuals have made exceptions to this command to love and peace; we seek the goal of peace but avoid the means of peace. Of Passion and Folly presents the challenging call of Christ to love in all times and in all places, and reminds us that from the folly of the cross in the passion of Jesus, peace was born, and it can be born again.In Of Passion and Folly Sister Patricia McCarthy, CND, demonstrates that - through Scripture, the sacraments, the formation of the conscience through prayer and action, and in community with each other, we can walk along Jesus' way, the way of peace. She opens the door to a transformation from violence to peace by emphasizing the need for education in the spirituality rooted in the Gospel and in the tradition and sacramental life of the Church.The underlying conviction Sister Patricia brings to Of Passion and Folly is that the work of peace is integral to the message of Christ's teachings and life. The spirituality of peace, which cannot co-exist with violence of any kind, is found within the gospel although it has often been buried under the just war tradition of our Church. In order to be whole in our response to Jesus Christ, she challenges us to reexamine our attitudes and be willing to re-look at prayer, the sacraments, Eucharist, penance, business practices, social life, parenting, lifestyles, and consumerism in light of Jesus' command to love one another, even our enemies. We must also be willing to take war, violence, injustice, racism, hatred, and revenge and measure them against the standards of Christ.Sister Patricia draws upon her firsthand experience of the violence which surrounds and overwhelms our world today. She points out that although Christians believe the resurrection of Christ has conquered the violence we experience today, we need direction to live as people of the resurrection. Of Passion and Folly provides that direction. Written for a Catholic audience, it is a valuable tool for directors of adult education in parishes, for teachers and chaplains in high schools and colleges, for those involved in the RCIA, and for peace action groups. Of Passion and Folly helps us move from merely desiring peace to deliberately choosing peace. The basis of our choice is awareness of our call to peace, a call given us in baptism, strengthened in confirmation, renewed in confession, and nourished in Eucharist. Union with the one who came among us as the Prince of Peace is the goal of a life of peace. Patricia McCarthy, CND, has worked as an educator with the poor, particularly with abused and emotionally disturbed children, for over twenty years. She gives lectures, courses, and retreats on the theology and spirituality of Christian nonviolence to students, adult education classes, parish groups, school faculties, and religious communities throughout the U.S., Canada, Ireland, Northern Ireland, Japan, and Bosnia-Herzogovina. The Liturgical Press also published her book The Scent of Jasmine: Reflections for Peace in Everyday Life.

The Word of God, the Word of Peace
2002 Catholic Press Association Award Winner! Since peace is lived in the daily circumstances of life, The Word of God - the Word of Peace highlights the prophets who tried to help the people of their day find peace in the nitty gritty of life. It is not so much about the prophets as it is about the call of prophecy given each baptized person. The commitment to prophetic peace is highlighted in the teachings of Old and New Testament prophets illuminated by the life and teachings of Jesus Christ, the Prince of Peace.Section one of The Word of God - the Word of Peace invites us to reflect on God's request. The idea of peace is God's, and God invites others to spread the word. Section two follows with the response of the peacemaker, the decision to be with God in the work of peace. Section three focuses on the decisions for peace. When does justice, the foundation of peace, demand that we say yes and when *no - ? In the final section, Sr. McCarthy deals with the reward of those who are faithful to God's plan, stating that even the results of peace need scriptural understanding. She encourages people both individually and communally to immerse themselves in the desires of God, discern the ways of God for our time and our place, and celebrate with others the cry of God for peace and justice for all people.Society has programmed us to violence so that we cannot imagine or even take seriously the reality of peace. The Word of God can penetrate our incredulity, enlighten our Vision, and strengthen our resolve to be the people of peace God desires now and has always desired from the beginning of time.

Life in the Country House in Georgian Ireland
For aristocrats and gentry in 18th-century Ireland, the townhouses and country estates they resided in were carefully constructed to accommodate their cultivated lifestyles. Based on new research from Irish national collections and correspondence culled from papers in private keeping, this publication provides a vivid and engaging look at the various ways in which families tailored their homes to their personal needs and preferences. Halls were designed in order to simultaneously support a variety of activities, including dining, music, and games, while closed porches allowed visitors to arrive fully protected from the country's harsh weather. These grand houses were arranged in accordance with their residents' daily procedures, demonstrating a distinction between public and private spaces, and even keeping in mind the roles and arrangements of the servants in their purposeful layouts. With careful consideration given to both the practicality of everyday routine and the occasional special event, this book illustrates how the lives and residential structures of these aristocrats were inextricably woven together.
