The congregation of the Sisters of the Holy Hieromartyr Josaphat of the UGCC together with 'Svichado' Publishing House have published for the first time in Ukrainian the world bestseller authored by American Bishop Robert Barron 'Catholicism: A Journey to the Heart of Faith'.

June 8, Lviv hosted the presentation of a media-project involving an auxiliary Bishop of the Lviv Archeparchy of the UGCC Volodymyr, Auxiliary Bishop of the Lviv Archdiocese of the Roman Catholic Church Edward Coffee, Vice-Rector of UCU Miroslav Marinovich, Bogdan Trojanovsky, Director of "Svichado" Publishing House, and Fr Oleg Kindia, Professor, of the Department of Theology, promoter of the project in Ukraine sister Klymentia Lukiv of the congregation of Sisters of the Holy Martyr Josaphat UGCC.

The book invites the reader to discover in a new way and to deepen awareness of the Christian faith, to get acquainted with the richness of the Church of Christ and its significant contribution to the development of world civilization.

"Catholicism" is represented on Facebook and Instagram, where promoters will talk about the project's development and share their work experience.

Already two years ago, the translation of "Catholicism" was a bold dream of a nun. Still, today it has become a reality, because the promoter of the project, sister Klymentia Lukiv, shares a secret: "The one who strives for the greatness achieves the greatness because nothing is impossible for God." Sister Klymentia owes the success of the project to God and said that the media project "Catholicism", in addition to the book, also provides for the Ukrainian dubbing of a 10-episode film and a training program.

"This book will be a great success," says Bogdan Troyanovsky, Director of 'Svichado' Publishing House. These book and film are needed. They talk about the truth in a different, modern way. Modern people need this language and this way of data presenting. This is a successful project."

Bishop Edward Kava is convinced that this book and film are intended not only for people outside the Church but also for those who are in the Church. "This new Evangelization is very touching and reaches your heart. This book will be interesting for everyone, both for priests and theologians and most importantly for those who observe the Church from the outside. It appeals to the modern person in an accessible language, shows the essence, culture and beauty of the Church. This is a perfect tool for Evangelization," says the Bishop of the RCC.

The scholar called the book fantastic and unique in the sense that it has adopted an understandable way of talking with the contemporary people.

The chief patron of the project in Ukraine is Bogdan Batruk h-director, producer and film expert, founder of the film distribution company B&H Film Distribution".

You can buy the book directly from St Josaphat sisters through the online order form, in bookstores and on the website of 'Svichado' Publishing House.
