Adoremus Extra

It couldn’t be more timely! Pope Francis recently announced the forthcoming canonisation of an iconic twentieth century martyr for social justice, Blessed Oscar Romero, soon to become San Romero of America. It is probably of no coincidence that Romero, who was gunned down as he offered Mass in El Salvador, may possibly be canonised (the date has not yet been announced) around the same time as the National Eucharistic Congress here in England and Wales.

When Redemptorist Publications approached Julian Filochowskiof the Romero Trust and asked him to write about Romero as a “Eucharistic martyr”, they had no idea that his canonisation could be so close.

Neither did they know that, in asking Professor David Crystal to write about John Bradburne, he would be taking one step closer to being officially recognised as a martyr. Bradburne, from Skirwith in Cumbria, was kidnapped and murdered in Zimbabwe (then Southern Rhodesia) on 5 September 1979 for refusing to abandon his beloved leprosy patients.

Julian Filochowski and Professor David Crystalare two of more than forty contributors to a special 124-page magazine, Adoremus Extra, which aims to leads towards and beyond the Eucharistic Congress which will take place in Liverpool in September.

In the pages of Adoremus Extra, published by Redemptorist Publications, more than forty writers put their hearts and souls into proclaiming that Jesus is their VIP – and for life!

Fr RanieroCantalamessa OFM Cap., Preacher to the Papal Household for Popes John Paul II, Benedict XVI and Francis, opens the beautiful kaleidoscope of Eucharistic treasures.

Other renowned scholars Dom Henry Wansbrough OSB, Fr Nicholas King SJ, Fr Denis McBride C.Ss.R. and Church historian Fr Norman Tanner SJ come together to tell us why the Eucharist is “the source and summit” of life.

Professor David Crystal and Julian Filowchowski highlight John Bradburne and the soon-to-be-canonised Blessed Oscar Romero, who literally “put down their lives for their friends”... as did the nineteenth century “martyr priests of Liverpool” during successive cholera epidemics.

Husband and wife team Frank and Denise Cottrell Boyce, screenwriter and catechist, add their own gems to this keepsake magazine.

Adoremus Extra also includes the thoughts and experiences of a prison chaplain and inmates, whose lives are turned around behind bars, parish catechists, a school chaplain...

There’s something for everyone!
