Benevolence, compassion, and industriousness are the hallmarks of the Order of the Balm of Joy, the female clerical order of the Peonian Church. Serving as both complement and counterpoint to the all-male Irreproachable Order, the sisters of the Balm of Joy contribute to the root mission of the Peonian Church in ways that are more secular and temporal than spiritual and dogmatic. The chief aim of the Order of the Balm of Joy is to alleviate physical human suffering by providing direct aid to the sick, the hungry, the poor, and the dying. Priestesses of the order can be found in enterprises ranging from the running of hospitals to missionary work to hard agricultural labor. It is often said that members must be equally comfortable "elbow deep in blood or knee deep in mud."
 
In addition to covering the order's history, present situation, scriptures, and lore, the article details how one joins and lives in the order. Also included are descriptions of three specialist subgroups in the order: the midwives in the Daughters of St. Eaclid, the missionaries of the Shepherdesses of Valon, and the Sisters of Deliverance, also known as the Merciful Sisters, who are dedicated to the care of the dead and dying.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
