Cebu launches book on International Eucharistic Congress

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.
