We believe that we and our authors offer a fruitful announcement of the Word of salvation. in the midst of the challenges in the present changing social-cultural and ecclesial context so that every man and woman of good will can encounter the Word that saves: Christ the Master, Way, Truth and Life. It is the synergy between Pauline Books and Media and our authors that enables us all to permeate the world with the Gospel and fill it with hope.
