Here is some reading I'll eventually be doing:
Tortures et tourments des martyrs chrétiens talks about persecutions that were imposed on our brothers and sisters of the first century. This will be a very interesting reading... the kind that challenges.
Being a disciple of Christ in this society has a "persecution factor" that goes as far as social exclusion, to a certain extent. This is something else, and should fire up some zeal in me for sure!
It looks there is some good content in the Canadian Libraries of the Internet Archive... check it out.
Here is something that sounds like a good rendering of the Dance of the Maids. Please keep in mind that I'm no expert.
