New book offers reflections of bishop slain in Turkey in 2010

Catholic World News - June 12, 2012

Italian bookstores are now stocking a volume of memoirs and reflections by Bishop Luigi Padovese, who was killed in Turkey two years ago.

Entitled La Verita nell’Amore (Truth and Love), the book testifies to the lively Christian faith of the Capuchin priest who became apostolic vicar of Anatolia, and the challenges he faced living in a predominantly Islamic society. The bishop’s reflections show that he was acutely aware of the risks that he faced. In an introduction the former Vatican Secretary of State, Cardinal Angelo Sodano, remarks that the slain bishop’s thoughts “do not cease to impress even today, following his cruel end.”
