HAPPINESS MANUFACTURERS
Hedwig Lewis, SJ
   
This book is addressed to young men and women who have already committed themselves to undertake the ‘mission’ of Christ: pre-novices, candidates, aspirants, postulants…as well as those on the verge of deciding their ‘vocation’. Happiness cannot be manufactured – it is Life’s Gift. One can only assemble a set of ‘ingredients’ in the hope that they will produce happiness. The essential ingredients such as: healthy attitudes, optimistic perspectives, a genuine heart for cordial relationships and selfless service, unconditional generosity, a sensitivity to justice and tolerance, a sound value system, and ‘interior life’ of spirituality and prayer…can be manufactured’ – made by one’s own effort with help from others.

TRAIL BLAZERS FOR CHRIST
Maurice Dullard, SJ & I. Echaniz,SJ
   
 
Ignatius looked for men who ‘wished to love more and to distinguish themselves in the total service of the Eternal King and Universal Lord’. The modern followers of Ignatius have witnessed to Christ in our times in very diverse circumstances and ways. It is hoped that the witness of their lives may inspire others to hear the call of the King and follow Him with similar generosity.

GRIT AND GRACE, Life of St, Teresa of Avila
 
Luis M Bermejo, SJ
   
She was one of those rare personalities who combine qualities that seem to exclude one another and are seldom found together in an individual. She loved tenderly, yet would brook no non-sense from anyone. She possessed both a strong self-image and an astonishing humility. A born leader, she was completely obedient to her Superiors. She could be a windmill of activity at one time and at another be lost in mystical contemplation. Though she was highly intelligent and amazingly efficient, she gravitated towards simple men and women.

JOHN DE BRITTO AND HIS TIMES

MOTHER TERESA, A Saint from Skopje
Hiromi Josepha Kudo Ph.D.
   
Mother Teresa is a lady who by any standards will rank as one of the most saintly and remarkable individuals of all time. This is not merely due to the unqualified benignity and accord she exuded among the poor, the sick, the lepers, and other hapless souls blessed to cross her path, but as Miss Kudo explains, throughout her life, in her dealings with all, she never in any way revealed even the faintest trace of any bias or inequity whatsoever. The author traces Mother Teresa’s life from Skopje to Calcutta.

PILGRIM AMONG HINDUS
Carlos G Valles
   
 
The book is the story of a Jesuit priest, living for 10 years as a member of Hindu families, in Ahmedabad, in heartfelt harmony on both sides and on all counts. That way of life was undertaken with a view to achieve closeness, intimacy, and mutual understanding with people of a quite different language, culture and religion and it did much good to all who took part in that happy adventure and whose story is told in this book. Housewives, children, religious feasts, weddings, strikes, police curfew, birth and deaths are chronicled with the closeness of the eyewitness and the open heart of a member of the family.

PEDRO ARRUPE, SJ ,Twenty-eighth General of the Society of Jesus
Dr. George Bishop
   
 
In the tempestuous history of the Society of Jesus it fell to the lot of a 57 year old Spanish Basque to guide the organisation through one of the most difficult and crucial periods of religious life – the years after Vat. II with all the burden of stress and strain triggered by the exigencies of change and adaptation in the Church and in the Society. His Generalship was characterised by the struggle for Justice and Faith: religious faith today must be outspoken in its opposition to the social evils of poverty, hunger, the unjust distribution of wealth and resources, racial and social discrimination. He was a “little big man”.

PIKA-DON, A true Story
Dr. George Bishop

UNTO THE INDIES, Life of St, Francis Xavier
Luis M. Bermejo SJ
   
  Xavier emerges as a rather complex individual with sharply contrasting features in his character. We see a man who loved passionately the Society of Jesus; and who advocated placing it under the control of civil authorities. A man who could go about in the Fishery coast in a patched, tattered cassock; and strut in Japan like a colourful peacock dressed up in silk and satin. A man who could joyfully frolic like a child in the frozen snows of Japan; and who could feel angry and depressed when travelling back to India.
