Msgr. Lorenzo Albacete’s first posthumous book will be available at New York Encounter 2019

It is with great pleasure that we present Msgr. Lorenzo Albacete’s first posthumous book. Lorenzo had a flair for the dramatic, but even in his youth he had a profound sense of what was at stake in the Christian claim: It is either true, for each of us, and it changes everything or “let’s pack it all up and go to the movies.” Join us in celebrating the great gift of the Mystical Monsignor and delve deeply with us into some of his most important writings.
