More > mission of everyone who plays a sport. Athletes sacrifice their body and all that dwells within for the good of someone and something beyond themselves.

Sports are thus a profound way to live the Eucharist. This book will help athletes reflect on their sport as a vocation that draws them into a deeper sense of discipleship. The Mass, Eucharistic adoration, the Sacrament of Reconciliation, prayer, the liturgical year, humility, suffering, and what it means to be a member of the Body of Christ are among the topics covered, all from an athletic perspective.

Sport In Abyssinia, the Mareb and Tackazzee By Dermot Mayo
eBook (ePub): $3.99
I present this book to the Public simply as an account of what I did and saw; and the impressions the different events and scenes made upon my mind. I have written it from notes and my daily Journal.... More > The stories that are in it were told me, some by Natives, others by Europeans; either over the camp fire, or to while away the tedium of a long march, or the ennui of life on board ship. These tales must be taken as they are written; they amused me much at the time, and if they only interest my readers I shall be content. I hope to revisit Abyssinia, but under more favourable auspices; and trust that better luck may attend me. I have spelt the names of places as they are pronounced, having had them repeated over several times to me by our excellent interpreter, Peter Brou. (From the Book's Preface)< Less
