On May 28, 2020, the world-famous book "Catholicism: a Journey to the Heart of the Faith" by American preacher, writer and theologian Bishop Robert Barron was published in Ukraine.


The world bestseller was published in Russian by the Congregation of the Sisters of the Holy Hieromartyr Josaphat of the UGCC together with Svichado Publishing House with the blessing of Metropolitan and Archbishop Igor of Lviv, the press service of the Lviv Archdiocese reports.

"As the Bishop of the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church, I am very pleased that after three decades since our Church came out of hiding, many Ukrainian Greek Catholics and Roman Catholics will be able to rethink their belonging to the Catholic Church with the help of this book. Throughout our history, we have always shown a fervent desire to remain with the Successor of the Apostle Peter, often at the cost of persecution and martyrdom," notes Metropolitan Ihor of Lviv of the UGCC in an address to readers.

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

According to the publishers, this book will be especially useful for anyone who is looking for a deeper understanding of what all Catholics believe in and why.

The print edition is the first part of a large-scale multimedia evangelization project "Catholicism", which also includes a ten-series documentary and program, work on which is continuing in Ukraine.

Translation of "Catholicism" two years ago was a bold dream of a nun. Today it has become a reality, because the promoter of the project, sister Klymentia Lukiv shares the secret: "who wants big, gets big, because God has nothing impossible."

The chief patron of the project in Ukraine is Bohdan Batrukh -Director, producer and film expert, founder of the film distribution company B&H Film Distribution". It is thanks to his support that the book has been translated, as well as the dubbing of the film into Ukrainian and the curriculum is being prepared.

Catholicism is represented on Facebook and Instagram social networks, where promoters will talk about the development of the project and share their work experience.

You can buy the book directly from the sisters of Josaphat through the online order form, in bookstores and on the website of the Svichado publishing house.

The first online presentations with the participation of publishers, hierarchs, clergy and faithful of the UGCC and RCC are planned for the beginning of June. Information about the presentation will be published on the Catholicism page on Facebook.
