Lives of Service takes us on an inspiring journey of faith and discovery. Profiles of Maryknoll missioners today -- priests, Sisters, Brothers, and lay people -- show their efforts to live the Gospel and seek the face of God among the diverse cultures and peoples of the world.Their stories include-- A Maryknoll Brother working in Thailand talks about holding "the body of Christ" as an indigent man dies in his arms.-- A Maryknoll priest in Bangladesh speaks of the "compassion of Allah", as he witnesses brilliant generosity in his destitute Muslim neighbors.-- A lay missioner and physician finds "miracles" in her medical work in an impoverished war zone in Sudan.-- A Maryknoll Sister describes her work among HIV/AIDS patients in Cambodia as an effort to "witness to the presence of God in their lives".-- A Maryknoll Sister in Panama describes the experience of mission this way: "We discover the beauty and tragedy of life together".
