What has the Catholic Church done for humanity?

If you listen to popular culture today, you might get the impression that the Church is the universal enemy. The Church stands inthe way of progress. It exploits the poor.

This book reminds us of what the Catholic Church is about...its people and how the church grows through its people in arts, science, literature, music,charity, human dignity and peace. And much more.
