Semana V de Pascua

San Beda, el Venerable, presbítero y doctor de la Iglesia

Nació en el 673 cerca del monasterio benedictino de Wearmouth (Inglaterra). Allí ingresó como monje, y dedicó toda su vida a estudiar, a escribir y a enseñar. Se interesó tanto por los temas teológicos como por los científicos, y de una manera especial por la Sagrada Escritura: «¡Qué hombre realmente afortunado! A menudo cantaba: o bien textos de san Pablo u otros fragmentos de la Biblia, o bien poesías escritas en la nuestra propia lengua, pues de hecho conocía bien la poesía inglesa» (Carta de Cuthbert).

 

Hoy también celebramos Sant Gregorio VII: Perseguido por el emperador Enrique IV de Alemania, el papa murió en el exilio «por haber amado la justicia y odiado la iniquidad» (1085).

 

 

 

 

Y también celebramos Santa María Magdalena de Pazzi: Carmelita, rezó y escribió mucho por la reforma de la Iglesia (1566-1607).

TRAVELLING TO INFINITY: THE TRUE STORY BEHIND THE THEORY OF EVERYTHING

sinopsis

In this compelling memoir his first wife, Jane Hawking, relates the inside story of their extraordinary marriage. As Stephen's academic renown soared, his body was collapsing under the assaults of motor neurone disease, and Jane's candid account of trying to balance his 24-hour care with the needs of their growing family will be inspirational to anyone dealing with family illness. The inner-strength of the author, and the self-evident character and achievements of her husband, make for an incredible tale that is always presented with unflinching honesty; the author's candour is no less evident when the marriage finally ends in a high-profile meltdown, with Stephen leaving Jane for one of his nurses, while Jane goes on to marry an old family friend. In this exceptionally open, moving and often funny memoir, Jane Hawking confronts not only the acutely complicated and painful dilemmas of her first marriage, but also the faultlines exposed in a relationship by the pervasive effects of fame and wealth. The result is a book about optimism, love and change that will resonate with readers everywhere.
