VILLAGE MEETING TONIGHT
Sinajana Community Center.
All are encouraged to attend.
Also, these books and others will be made available for purchase at the meeting.
The Catechism conveys the Church's essential teachings clearly, concisely, and in a way that speaks directly to practicing Catholics.
For 2,000 years, Catholicism--the largest religion in the world and in the United States--has shaped global history on a scale unequaled by any other institution. But until now, Catholics interested in their faith have been hard-pressed to find an accessible, affirmative, and exciting history of the Church.
"Triumph" is that history. Inside, you'll discover the spectacular story of the Church from Biblical times and the early days of St. Peter--the first pope--to the twilight years of John Paul II. It is a sweeping drama of Roman legions, great crusades, epic battles, toppled empires, heroic saints, and enduring faith. And, there are stormy controversies: Dark Age skullduggery, the Inquisition, the Renaissance popes, the Reformation, the Church's refusal to accept sexual liberation and contemporary allegations like those made in "Hitler's Pope" and "Papal Sin."
A brawling, colorful history full of inspiring pageantry and spirited polemic, "Triumph" will exhilarate, amuse, and infuriate as it extols the glories of Catholic history and the gripping stories of its greatest men and women.
