Look inside


The reflections of his experience of imprisonment under the Communist government of Vietnam that Cardinal Francis Xavier Nguyen Van Thuan prepared for the 1997 World Youth Day in Paris became the framework for Five Loaves & Two Fish; the content is his personal Magnificat for the wonders God had worked in and through the small offering of his life – like the fish and loaves in the Gospel, which fed thousands.
