Booklet Outlines Churches in Communion With Rome
Posted: 15 Oct 2002
Read about the history of the church since its founding to present times in The One Church and the Communion of Churches. The booklet gives an outline of the spread of the early church from Jerusalem to Antioch, Alexandria, Rome, Constantinople and other religious centers. Each church developed its own method of celebrating the faith.
Heresies the young church had to overcome and the councils that defined doctrine also are mentioned.
Material covers the development of national Catholic churches in Eastern Europe, Asia and Africa. Liturgical traditions and rites that developed in different countries are summarized.
The pamphlet has a brief summary of the Great Schism of 1054, which culminated in the separation of the Church of Rome from the Church of Constantinople.
The booklet has many four-color illustrations, a timeline and a map. Charts containing a listing of non-Catholic Eastern churches and the populations of Catholic churches elucidate the text; a glossary defines important terms.
The 32-page booklet is published by the Missionaries of Faith Foundation, 1546 East La Palma Ave., Anaheim, Calif. 92805. It costs $6.65, which includes shipping and handling. Discounts are available for multiple orders.
