Fr. Max Oliva ’61 writes, "As a result of my ministry with men and women in the corporate community both in the United States and in Canada, a sequel to my book, Beatitudes for the Workplace (2009), has recently been published. It is called The 10 Commandments for Everyday Life. Both books are available also on Kindle and both are available either from 23rd Publications or on Amazon.com."

Oliva works with businesspeople—Catholics or non-Catholics—to try to sort through quandaries they encounter in the office: How should a businessperson deal with a larcenous partner, lay off people to satisfy cash flow necessities yet not crush the spirit of the former employees, or handle a contract dispute with a client?

If you know anyone with cancer, have them call me regarding the nutrients and supplements I take to stay healed. I still am an active therapist for kids and adults, just contracted with TriCareWest to counsel traumatized veterans returning from Iraq or Afghanistan."
