Dancing Women by Rina Corpus
Las Islas Filipinas by Cristo Rey Alunan
Abstract: The practice of mysticism teaches you the art of attuning with a higher consiousness. Then instead of being guided by the desires and tendencies of your mind and body, you are guided by the promptings of a higher consciousness. This practice will develop you insight and give you the experience of lasting peace and contentment, which no outer pursuit can ever give.
The Richest Woman in Babylon by Annette Tersigni
The Nursing Care of Communities by Zenaida Uzigan-Famorca
By Benigno P. Beltran
Smokey Mountain, a vast garbage dump in Manila, the Philippines, served for many years as an emblem of Third World squalor. In many ways, it is a metaphor for a planet slowly choking on garbage and waste. But for Fr. Beltran, who served for three decades as chaplain to the 25,000 scavengers who survive off this reeking heap, it is also a metaphor of hope, an emblem of the will to survive, the ability to create joy and find meaning even in the midst of abject poverty.
Faith and Struggle on Smokey Mountain describes the spiritual resilience of struggling peoples, and how, through their eyes, Fr. Beltran learned to read the Gospel anew. The lessons he learned bear a message for all who struggle for a better world.
