New Book Wednesdays: The Scent of Holiness

Dear Students and Friends,

Here's a brand new book from Conciliar Press that will appeal to women and to Mount Athos "fans"-- The Scent of Holiness: Lessons from a Women's Monastery by Constantina Palmer.

Conciliar describes the book thus:

Every monastery exudes the scent of holiness, but women's monasteries have their own special flavor. Join Constantina Palmer as she makes frequent pilgrimages to a women's monastery in Greece and absorbs the nuns' particular approach to their spiritual life. If you're a woman who's read of Mount Athos and longed to partake of its grace-filled atmosphere, this book is for you. Men who wish to understand how women's spirituality differs from their own will find it a fascinating read as well.

You can earn 2 credits for reading this book. Simply read, fill out the General Worksheet for Books (available from the lessons tab, above) and email it to else10(at)gmail(d0t)com, and your credits will be awarded.

Order the book from Conciliar Press.

The Scent of Holiness by Constantina Parker. ISBN 978-1-936270-42-2, 288 pages, Conciliar Press: 2012.
