Fr Joe Mannath`s new book, ``A Radical Love, A Path of Light: The Beauty and Burden of Religious Life``, in no time has gone into its second edition. The book has indeed received loads of positive responses and is really becoming a best seller. What is this book all about? It unfolds in a very realistic manner both the beauty and the burden of religious life with life stories. As I was gifted a copy of the book, I got glued to it and the deep insights that Joe has managed to put into writing are so penetrating that very often I said to myself: Wow! This is exactly how I see religious obedience, religious leadership, religious commitment, community life and sense of belonging etc. The mystic aura of religious life is captured in its fullness and the author has succeeded in enumerating the beauty of religious life from an interdisciplinary perspective: a true delight indeed. The burden of religious life as enumerated by Joe is a challenging call to rediscover the beauty of religious life which for various reasons is overshadowed by fear or other reasons. As one ruminates the Path of religious life (Part I: first 20 chapters), the Roadblocks (part II: 10 chapters) and the Helps (part III: 10 chapters), something great is happening inside one’s being. Zest for new life, great determination to begin anew, to hurry up to make up for the lost time and energy, greater commitment to rededicate ones being and we can go on adding to the list. Joe is an experienced formator, trainer of formators, renowned international lecturer and a searched after writer. He has his own style of writing which is very creative and captivating. Joe has a wealth of examples from real life which he unwraps in almost every page of this book which makes the reader wonderstruck and at the same time highly motivated. The questions for Reflection/Discussion, the Body Scan a Parable, Before We Part and the Feedback Form make this book really creative, original and reader friendly. The book is aimed at: “individual religious for personal reading and reflection, formators to use with novices and young religious, busy superiors for reading and giving talks and lay persons who want to understand what this ‘crazy’ choice is all about’.” The first edition released in 2013 sold out in less than three months and an additional 3000 copies of the second edition have just been released. ``Radical Love, a Path of Light`` is priced at Rs. 180.00, and is available from CRI Delhi, and the Pauline book stores. What better gift can the newly elected National Secretary of the Conference of Religious of India, Joe can offer than ``A Radical Love, A Path of Light: The Beauty and Burden of Religious Life``? It is a very timely and precious gift precisely when Pope Francis has invited Religious to Wake up the World. Sr.Dr. Teresa Joseph fma
