Gravity and Grace was the first ever publication by the remarkable thinker and activist, Simone Weil. In it Gustave Thibon, the farmer to whom she had entrusted her notebooks before her untimely death, compiled in one remarkable volume a compendium of her writings that have become a source of spiritual guidance and wisdom for countless individuals. On the fiftieth anniversary of the first English edition - by Routledge & Kegan Paul in 1952 - this Routledge Classics edition offers English readers the complete text of this landmark work for the first time ever, by incorporating a specially commissioned translation of the controversial chapter on Israel. Also previously untranslated is Gustave Thibon's postscript of 1990, which reminds us how privileged we are to be able to read a work which offers each reader such 'light for the spirit and nourishment for the soul'. This is a book that no one with a serious interest in the spiritual life can afford to be without.

Simone Weil, the French philosopher, political activist, and religious mystic, was little known when she died young in 1943. Four years later the philosopher-farmer Gustave Thibon compiled La pesanteur et la grâce from the notebooks she left in his keeping. In 1952 this English translation accelerated the fame and influence of Simone Weil. The striking aphorisms in Gravity and Grace reflect the religious philosophy of Weil’s last years. Written at the onset of World War II, when her health was deteriorating and her left-wing social activism was giving way to spiritual introspection, this masterwork makes clear why critics have called Simone Weil “a great soul who might have become a saint” and “the Outsider as saint, in an age of alienation.”

In this thoughtful and carefully argued book, John Desmond uncovers Christian and transcendent elements in Seamus Heaney's poetry by reading it through the intellectual perspectives of the well-known poet Czeslaw Milosz and the French philosopher Simone Weil. Weil was a powerful influence on Milosz's thought and writing; Milosz, in turn, exercised considerable influence on Heaney's thought and poetry. Desmond utilizes these connections in order to show the way Weil's thought about Christianity and transcendence illuminates Heaney's complex relationship with Christianity. Desmond's sensitive readings of Heaney's poems through this new lens reveal previously unexplored depths in the work of the Nobel Prize-winning poet.

Grit, Gravity & Grace: New Poems About Medicine and Healthcare is a modest collection of forty-one poems by thirty-eight poets that originated from a poetry competition sponsored by the Section on Medicine and the Arts at The College of Physicians of Philadelphia in the winter of 2014 - 2015. The primary goal of the competition was to bring together poets and those who love poetry from all walks of life in a shared poetic dialogue about medicine, health and healthcare. The secondary goal was to host an evening poetry event at The College in celebration of the 25th anniversary of National Poetry Month in April 2015. Poems in this collection are by students, health care practitioners, educators, patients, and their families. They capture unique experiences and perspectives; they speak of vulnerability and ambivalence, insight and epiphany. Some bear witness to caregivers' compassion, others to detachment. Some observe illness and the human condition with humor, others with profound sadness.The poems are grouped by season as many capture images relevant to a particular time of the year or focus on a disease that peaks during certain months. "Spring" allows us to move from the joy of new birth to the angst of adolescence, from the nourishing nature of intravenous therapy to the fresh bloom of life following remission from cancer. "Summer" reminds us of the devastating polio epidemics of years gone by but also invokes optimism, vacations, the promise of new discoveries and experiences. "Autumn" presents a time for reflection on what it means to be a student, to suffer from depression, to struggle as the caregiver of an aging parent, or acknowledge the growing frailty of the body. "Winter" devolves into dire diagnoses, threats to one's sense of self, and the fears and realities of death, dying and loss; yet even here, the warmth, beauty and resilience of human nature prevail.

New York Times best-selling author Caroline Myss draws from her years as a medical intuitive to show that healing is not only physical; it is also a mystical phenomenon that transcends reason. Inspired by ordinary people who overcame a wide array of physical and psychological ailments - from rheumatoid arthritis to cancer - Caroline dove into the works of the great mystics to gain a deeper understanding of healing's spiritual underpinnings. Based on these studies, she demonstrates how conventional and holistic medicine often fall short in times of need. Both systems rely upon a logical approach to curing illness when there is nothing reasonable about the emotional, psychological, or spiritual influences behind any ailment. Integral to this mystical healing approach is the engagement of the soul, which we experience through exploring our seven shadow passions, building an empowered inner self around our seven inherent graces, and learning how to work with the mystical laws that govern it. This knowledge holds the key to understanding what it means to defy gravity and break through the boundaries of ordinary thought. You can heal any illness. You can channel grace. And you can learn to live fearlessly.

In the museum Martin stands watch over the past. He has travelled a long way from his brutal childhood in the Loyalist heartlands of Belfast and built a life he never imagined he would have - a devoted wife, Alison, two children, Rachel and Tom, a respectable job. But the happiness he has found feels brittle. Rachel's academic success is launching her out of her proud father's orbit. Tom, eclipsed by his sister, has withdrawn into a fantasy world. Martin's gratitude to Alison is a gulf between them. He feels unworthy of his wife, his life, his luck. Returning home one night to find police cars waiting, Martin feels his sins must have finally caught up with him. But their news is wholly unexpected, a senseless tragedy. And in the face of this devastating trauma, which tears his fragile family apart, Martin finds the violence of the past is not gone but merely dormant; its call must be answered at last.

As I begin this memoir of my remembered things, I do so knowing that the past can never be reclaimed; it can only be evoked using the symbols of words. But my words, like all words, can only represent the reality of what has been; they cannot restore it. Some of these remembered things have come squawking in from the past like a flock of raucous crows; while others, more reserved, more subtle, more reticent, have come softly forward under cover of night to trouble my sleep with their images of the past. And even though I know that the past cannot be restored, altered, or corrected by mere human words, I know as well that these remembered things are the most certain, the most enduring, and the most informing of all our earthly possessions. Taken from the Preface Of Gravity and Grace Revisited - Tim Cronley.
