Vatican publishes book on Latin America's zeal for Gospel

.- The Vatican Publishing House released a book by the Pontifical Commission for Latin America on religious fervor in the continent and how it has contributed to the spread of the Gospel.

“Blessed John Paul II learned to appreciate and encourage this popular piety of Latin America very positively, especially during all of his untiring pilgrimages to the Marian shrines of all the countries of Latin America, which are the true spiritual capitals of those nations,” Cardinal Marc Ouellet, president of the commission, said on Nov. 17.

The new book is titled “Popular Piety in the Evangelization Process of Latin America,” and contains information from the commission's recent plenary meeting at the Vatican in April of this year.

It also has a discourse by Pope Benedict XVI on the topic of evangelization in Latin American as well as statements and addresses from members and advisers of the commission, pastoral recommendations and other documents.
