Quotes: “A beautiful explanation of Jesus’ Way and each of the Apostles as they encountered Jesus, how they came to believe, follow, and spread the Gospel to the point of losing their lives. The Holy Father brought the early Church alive to the here and now.”
“I was surprised that the Pope was able to bring to us so much information in such simple and understandable words. What an intimate picture of the Apostles & the early Church!”
