I call her name, and this time no response. This cannot be happening. I grab her by the shoulders and shake her and call out to her again...and still, no response. My eyes bulge and my heart races. I scream, ´Call a code!´ Every day around the world nurses are called upon to help save lives. These experiences are life changing. Not just for patients and their families, but for their nurses also. Nurse Tales: A Calling to Serve and Love is a collection of such events as told by nurses and author Maribel A. Yohn. 1.

Homilies from the Heart: Stories to Live Love and Serve One Another: Father George Rink
Published to coincide with Pope Francis´ Year of Mercy and the Vatican´s canonization of Mother Teresa, this new book of unpublished material by a humble yet remarkable woman of faith whose influence is felt as deeply today as it was when she was alive offers Mother Teresa´s profound yet accessible wisdom on how we can show mercy and compassion in our day-to-day lives. For millions of people from all walks of life, Mother Teresa´s canonization is providentially taking place during Pope Francis´ Extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy. This is entirely fitting, since she is seen both inside and outside of the church as an icon of God´s mercy to those in need. Compiled and edited by Brian Kolodiejckuk, MC, the postulator of Mother Teresa´s cause for sainthood, A Call to Mercy presents deep yet accessible wisdom on how we can show compassion in our everyday lives. In her own words, Mother Teresa discusses such topics as: The need for us to visit the sick and the imprisoned The importance of honoring the dead and informing the ignorant The necessity to bear our burdens patiently and forgive willingly The purpose to feed the poor and pray for all The greatness of creating a ´´civilization of love´´ through personal service to others Featuring never before published testimonials by people close to Mother Teresa as well as prayers and suggestions for putting these ideas into practice, A Call to Mercy is not only a lovely keepsake but a living testament to the teachings of a saint whose ideas are important, relevant, and very necessary in the 21st century. 1.

This gorgeous picture-book meditation on loss and family love is a useful tool for children navigating a first experience with death. When a family member or another loved one becomes ill, one of the scariest aspects of their sickness is the way they may change, both physically and in spirit. The feeling of loss can come so early as the person becomes more difficult to recognize. It´s a hard thing for anyone to understand, and especially so for a child. This book offers a helpful visualization of a sick person´s essence as a friendly creature who remains strong and warm, even as the illness progresses. The creature is always around and never tries to cheer the child up, but only serves to keep them company. Caroline Wright and Willow Heath clearly understand that, like the creature, a book cannot ´´fix´´ a painful situation or even make it a little better. Instead they simply reflect the pain of loss back to the reader and help them understand that they are not alone.
