RECORDED PAPAL CATECHESES BECOME BEST SELLER IN ARGENTINA

          BUENOS AIRES (CWNews.com) - A set of four cassettes with Pope John Paul II's catecheses in Spanish have become a surprising bestseller in Argentina.

          The set, entitled "Discovering an Unknown God" and released by the Catholic foundation "Fides," collects 78 catechetical talks in Spanish delivered by the Holy Father each week at the end of his longer catechesis delivered in Italian during his Wednesday general audiences. The collection includes the speeches given between 1989 and 1991.

          "Saint Paul spoke about the unknown God and the Pope invites today's world to discover that same, frequently unknown, God," says Fides in its presentation. The material, which was originally published as a catechetical aid for parishes and Catholic schools, has been bought in huge numbers by people who play the cassettes in their car or at home.
