Cebu Archdiocese is launching this weekend a commemorative book on the 51st International Eucharistic Congress (IEC) held in the central Philippine city of Cebu in January this year.
The 284-page coffee-table book titled Days of Hope and Glory comes with a DVD containing the talks delivered during the gathering that brought together some 15,000 delegates from 75 countries.
Among the authors of the book is Jesuit Father Jose Quilongquilong, president of the Loyola School of Theology in Manila.
"This is our legacy to Cebu for the most successful IEC ever held in the country and in the world," said Jobers Bersales, the book's editor.
"We hope to remember this event forever," he added.
….As we enter the first months of 2022, we are asking readers like you to help us keep UCA News free.
For the last 40 years, UCA News has remained the most trusted and independent Catholic news and information service from Asia. Every week, we publish nearly 100 news reports, feature stories, commentaries, podcasts and video broadcasts that are exclusive and in-depth, and developed from a view of the world and the Church through informed Catholic eyes.
Our journalistic standards are as high as any in the quality press; our focus is particularly on a fast-growing part of the world - Asia - where, in some countries the Church is growing faster than pastoral resources can respond to – South Korea, Vietnam and India to name just three.
And UCA News has the advantage of having in its ranks local reporters who cover 23 countries in south, southeast, and east Asia. We report the stories of local people and their experiences in a way that Western news outlets simply don’t have the resources to reach. And we report on the emerging life of new Churches in old lands where being a Catholic can at times be very dangerous.
With dwindling support from funding partners in Europe and the USA, we need to call on the support of those who benefit from our work.
