At the close of the Great Jubilee Year 2000 the then Holy Father, Pope John Paul II, invited us in an Apostolic Letter to remember the past with gratitude, to live the present with enthusiasm and to look to the future with confidence.
The book A Glimpse of Our Christian Heritage is indeed a remembering of the past with gratitude. It is what a glimpse should be an invitation to go further and discover the richness of the Christian heritage that has been passed on to us by living people who made up vibrant communities of faith. The Faith, handed down and practised, has been incarnated in an historical past and kept alive in a spirit of hope so that every generation might embrace it with enthusiasm and in turn hand it on with confidence. The book includes a picture and also a brief summary of the history of each church in the Diocese.
The book is a hard cover glossy paper, 96 pages full colour throughout and is available from Mallow Heritage Centre, 27/28 Bank Place, Mallow, Co. Cork, Ireland at a cost of €25.00 / $35.00 including postage.
