The Catechetical Review - Communicating Christ for a New Evangelization

Vivir el Año de la Misericordia

Authored by Edward Sri, STD in Issue #2.1 of Catechetical Review

Si entrabas a la tiendita de la esquina y preguntabas al ciudadano estadounidense promedio, "Qué es lo que representa la Iglesia Católica?", ¿cuál sería su respuesta?
