Reviews - What do our customers think?
Getting Tough about Peace  Oct 24, 2004
This little book is a feet-to-the fire test for those who profess to follow the tenets of Catholic social teaching or any other system of social justice. Early in this work, Haase warns us that fully understanding the Peace Prayer will induce in us a "psychological and spiritual earthquake." This small book is filled with strong sentiments that back up the earthquake image. One example is the questions at the end of each chapter, questions like " How can I actively seek out the poor among us?" and "How do I feel about my own death?"

And there's no wiggle room in Haase's definition of peace: not just keeping silent, but "taking a prophetic stand" by committing ourselves to uprooting the sources of hatred, injury, despair, sadness, and darkness suffered by the marginalized in society. Our words and actions should compel others to examine the attitudes and social structures that oppress and exploit society's weak and disenfranchised. To top it off, he reminds us that unlike a physical activity that gets easier with practice, "the more one travels in the footprints of the Master, the harder it gets."
 
New Insights into a favorite prayer  Sep 30, 2004
Certain inspirational sayings and prayers transcend denominational lines, becoming part of the fabric of faith and inspiration for masses of believers seeking solace or comfort in difficult times. In Reflections on the Peace Prayer of Saint Francis of Assisi (Saint Anthony Messenger Press & Franciscan Communications, September 2004, paperback 84 pages) author Albert Haase, O.F.M. dissects the classic "Peace Prayer" which is attributed to St. Francis of Assisi. In his enlightening introduction, Haase offers a brief history of the prayer, noting that it has been embraced by as a "prayer for all times and all peoples", having been used by such notables as Margaret Thatcher at her inauguration and at the funerals of Mother Teresa of Calcutta and Diana, Princess of Wales.

Given today's climate of political upheaval and war in so many areas of our world, contemplation of the Peace Prayer seems to be even more relevant than ever. This compact, twelve chapter book examines each phrase of the prayer in detail. Personal reflections and stories of individuals living out the aspects of the Prayer are offered and draw the reader into a closer understanding of what is meant by each simple expression. Each chapter ends with four reflective questions for individual or group consideration.

For individuals looking to truly live out the concept "Lord, make me an instrument of your peace", Albert Haase's book will become a treasured resource and invaluable prompt to both prayer and action. Groups looking for a concise study should enjoy gathering to read and contemplate the book as they examine how to become peacemakers in their own communities and in the world at large.
