Archbishop Antonio Mennini, the Apostolic Nuncio to Great Britain, visited St Pauls Bookshop in central London on Thursday March 31 to celebrate the publication of You Will Be My Witnesses, the latest book by Bishop Michael Campbell OSA.

The book, a series of reflections on the Scripture readings for the Mass during the Easter season, completes Bishop Campbell’s trilogy covering Advent, Lent and Easter.

Stephen Moseling, operations co-ordinator of St Pauls, pointed out that, after the Holy Father, Bishop Campbell is St Pauls’ most prolific author, with six books published in five years.

He said: “Like all of his books, this latest work is the result of a life spent studying Sacred Scripture. It is another example of the bishop’s ability to interpret Scripture in such a way that all who read it are enriched and encouraged on their journey with Christ through the liturgical year.”

Mr Moseling then read out a message of greeting from Cardinal Cormac Murphy-O’Connor, the Archbishop Emeritus of Westminster, who, due to a prior engagement, was unable to be present.
