A Gift of the Word
Posted: 01 Mar 1989

120,000 Russian-language Catholic Bibles will be sent to the Soviet Union for distribution. The books are a gift of the Holy Father to commemorate the millennium of the Christianization of the Ukraine and Russia. Catholic Near East has given support to print the Bibles in cooperation with the organization Aid to the Church in Need, which is raising funds to pay for the printing.
