She knew that if Celain caught her reading this forbidden material she'd...

To Die Like An Angel

One evening we went out and rescued four people off the streets. One of them was in a desperate condition. I told the sisters, "You take care of the others. I will care or this one who is worse off."

Digging A Way Out

There's a man who has been by himself in a prison cell with a dirt floor, crude stone walls, and there's two windows one of which looks out towards the ocean.

Love In Action – Spiritual Story By Ma Prem Pushpa
