Taking its title from a term referring to the visible community of Christian believers on Earth, The Church Visible is the classic resource on the universality, spirituality, and grandeur of the post-Vatican II Catholic Church. Pope John Paul II received author James-Charles Noonan, Jr. into the Apostolic Palace eleven times—and presented him with his zucchetto (skull-cap), a rare honor, as a sign of faith in his book.
Updated for the 21st century, it offers insight into recent developments within the church—namely the papacy of Benedict XVI—as well as information on its ceremonies, traditions, vesture, insignia, and protocol.
The Church Visible is a landmark study that faithfully represents the external life of the Church today.
