Item description for On Missionary Roads by Cardinal Jozef Tomko, Lubomir J. Strecok & Mercedes Voytko...

From Botswana to Thailand, from Peru to Bosnia, the missionary work of the Catholic Church stretches from pole to pole, encompassing every part of the globe. Jozef Cardinal Tomko, the Prefect of the Congregation for the Evangelization of Peoples from 1985 to 2001 under the late Pope John Paul II, shares his account of the many missionary journeys he made around the world. Often accompanying the Pope, Cardinal Tomko saw firsthand how the Church is dealing with the particular challenges of various cultures around the world. He gives witness to the flowering of faith as well as the hardships that many Catholics face in other countries. The encyclopedic knowledge of countries and peoples that the Cardinal possesses will enrich the reader's understanding of the world today, and show that the Roman Catholic Church is truly "one, holy, catholic, and apostolic."

Reviews - What do customers think about On Missionary Roads?

A Worldwide Guide to Catholic Missions  Nov 7, 2008
On Missionary Roads Jozef Cardinal Tomko, the Prefect of the Congregation for the Evangelization of Peoples from 1985 to 2001, is not just a Missionary. He is a world traveler, also an excellent observer and a narrator with a great sense of humor.
One can read this book for a variety of reasons: before or after visiting any of these countries to discover a different angle, a different vision, the hidden side of a particular region. But one can also read this book to better understand the various cultures of the world and the particular challenges the Church is dealing with in any part of the planet. One can also read this book to better understand the many facets of the Catholic Faith around the world, the flowering side of the Church as well as the hardship that many Catholics face around the world today.
This book is well documented and illustrated with maps and original color photos often taken by the author. On several occasions, Cardinal Tomko is traveling with Pope John Paul II and shares with us some historical moments and unusual anecdotes.
Besides the missionary life, the author is also writing about the daily routine of the people, their cultures, the animal kingdom and the superb landscapes of the earth. A multi-faceted book about our planet which will enrich the reader's understanding of the world today.
