But neither can anyone forget the innocent victims who, on both sides, fall day after day under the blows of violence. Weapons and bloody attacks will never be the right means for making a political statement to the other side. Nor is the logic of the law of retaliation capable any longer of leading to paths of peace. As I have already stated on many occasions, only respect for others and their legitimate aspirations, the application of international law, the evacuation of the occupied territories and an internationally guaranteed special status for the most holy places in Jerusalem can bring about a beginning of pacification in that part of the world and break the hellish cycle of hatred and vengeance.

And I express the hope that the international community will be enabled to fulfil, through peaceful and appropriate means, its irreplaceable role and be accepted by all the parties in the conflict. One against the other, neither Israelis nor Palestinians can win the war. But together they can win peace. The legitimate fight against terrorism, of which the abhorrent attacks of last 11 September are the most appalling expression, has once again let the sound of arms be heard.

Barbarous aggression and killings raise not only the question of legitimate defence but also issues such as the most effective means of eradicating terrorism, the search for the factors underlying such acts, and the measures to be taken to bring about a process of "healing" in order to overcome fear and to avoid evil being added to evil, violence to violence. It is appropriate therefore to encourage the new government installed in Kabul in its efforts to achieve the effective pacification of all Afghanistan. Finally I must mention the tensions which have once more set India and Pakistan at odds, in order earnestly to request the political leaders of these great nations to give absolute priority to dialogue and negotiation.

We also need to heed the question which comes to us from the depths of this abyss: that of the place and the use made of religion in the lives of people and societies. Here I wish to say once again, before the whole international community, that killing in the name of God is an act of blasphemy and a perversion of religion. This morning I wish to repeat what I wrote in my Message for January 1 : "It is a profanation of religion to declare oneself a terrorist in the name of God, to do violence to others in his name.

Terrorist violence is a contradiction of faith in God, the Creator of man, who cares for man and loves him" No. In the face of these outbreaks of irrational and unjustifiable violence, the great danger is that other situations will go unnoticed and leave whole peoples abandoned to their sad fate. I am thinking of Africa , and the health emergencies and armed struggles which are decimating its peoples.

Recently, during a debate in the General Assembly of the United Nations Organization it was observed that there were seventeen conflicts taking place on the African continent! In such a situation, the establishment of an "African Union" is in itself good news. This Organization should help to develop common principles capable of uniting all the member States, with a view to facing major challenges such as the prevention of conflicts, education and the fight against poverty. And how can I fail to mention Latin America , which is always dear to me?

In some countries of this great continent the persistence of social inequalities, drug trafficking, corruption and armed violence can endanger the foundations of democracy and discredit the political class. This is yet another reminder that political and economic activity at the national and international levels must always be inspired by the pursuit of the authentic good of individuals and peoples.

If this is to happen, private or partisan interests must be set aside, and the interest of the nation must be promoted by every legitimate means, through a return to moral values, open and frank dialogue, and the renunciation of what is superfluous in order to help those who are in any way in need.

This is yet another reminder that political and economic activity at the national and international levels must always be inspired by the pursuit of the authentic good of individuals and peoples. If this is to happen, private or partisan interests must be set aside, and the interest of the nation must be promoted by every legitimate means, through a return to moral values, open and frank dialogue, and the renunciation of what is superfluous in order to help those who are in any way in need.

In this spirit, it should be remembered that political activity is above all a noble, demanding and generous service to the community. The troubled situation of this world of ours at the dawn of the third millennium has one advantage, if I may say so: it makes us squarely face our responsibilities. Everyone is forced to ask the real questions: the truth about God and the truth about man.

God is not at the beck and call of one individual or one people, and no human venture can claim to monopolize him.

The children of Abraham know that God cannot be commandeered by anyone: God is to be received. Standing before the crib, Christians can better realize that Jesus himself did not impose himself, and he rejected the use of power as a means of promoting his kingdom! The truth about man, who is a creature. Man is true to himself only when he sees himself as coming from God, in an attitude of poverty. He is conscious of his dignity only when he acknowledges in himself and in others the mark of God who created him in his own image.

For this reason I chose to put the subject of forgiveness at the heart of my traditional Message for the celebration of the World Day of Peace on 1 January , for I am convinced that: "the help that religions can give to peace and against terrorism consists precisely in their teaching forgiveness, for those who forgive and seek forgiveness know that there is a higher Truth, and that by accepting that Truth they can transcend themselves" No.

This truth about God and man is a gift which Christians offer to all people, especially to their brothers and sisters who are followers of authentic Islam, a religion of peace and love of neighbour.

To you, Ladies and Gentlemen, I confide these reflections which rise from my prayer as well as from the things I hear from those who visit me. I ask you to pass them on to your governments.

Let us not be overwhelmed by the distress of the present time. Theola would have done anything to get out of England, but escape was proving more confining, more dangerous than her former prison. She had always been nothing more than a glorified Cinderella - a poor little cousin who waited hand-and-foot on the elegant young Lady Catherine Bourne.

But now Lady Catherine had left England and was sailing through the Adriatic on her way to Theola would have done anything to get out of England, but escape was proving more confining, more dangerous than her former prison. But now Lady Catherine had left England and was sailing through the Adriatic on her way to marry the king of Kavonia. And Theola was sailing with her!

She was free at last! But when the ship docked in the Kavonian harbor, Theola's new-found freedom vanished as quickly as the morning mist. The peaceful little kingdom was under seige, its imperious monarch overthrown by his own people.

And before she had time to unpack Lady Catherine's bags, Theola found herself in an empty palace guarded by the fiery, handsome man who had led the revolution - the passionate and unpredictable conqueror of Kavonia Get A Copy.

I had a bunch of Barbara Carolan novels on my shelves from days of old, and decided I need to read and pass on because they have been there forever. Full on romance and very darling. I enjoy them in the tub or just before bed--when I want to relax completely and NOT get to wrapped up in a story to sleep.
