Symbols of Catholicism
This book invites the readers either to discover or to increase their understanding of Catholicism, one of the cornerstones of Western culture. The symbols of the Catholic Church are at once human and divine, material and spiritual, for they are the very incarnation of the Word of God. Here Father La Gall examines the people at the heart of the church, its saints and biblical figures, the sacraments, songs, gestures and vestments as well as sacred objects and the church's liturgical calendar.
