News from the Publishing House ...

Claretian Publications and Pastoral Bible Foundation were busy during the past months as a number of important projects are on hand. With the arrival of the new Apostolic Exhortation by Pope Francis, "Amoris Laetitia" - The Joy of Love, Fr. Jijo and his team in Macau worked hard to make the copies available to the readers at the best possible price. The response to the book was so exciting, so that the Diocesan Pastoral Commission for Marriage and Family (DPCMF) and many parishes in Hong Kong purchased the book in large numbers. We have distributed a lot of copies free of cost in some of our parishes.

Apart from the religious, theological and pragmatic significance of the document, Pope Francis must be turning out to be one of a kind, best-selling authors!
Daily Gospel 2017

Daily Gospel 2017 in traditional Chinese is going into press and will be available in book-stalls by early August. 2017 marks the 100th Year anniversary of the Fatima Apparitions. This is the 10th year of publishing of the Daily Gospel in Chinese.  More than 100000 copies of the simplified version of the Chinese Daily Gospel is distributed in the Mainland China every year.
