Interesting History: The Catalyst by Don Teall

1950 was Roman Catholic Holy Year and the Pope was offering spiritual and temporal rewards to pilgrims visiting Rome from all around the world to celebrate the Jubilee. Two young men in their early twenties, and just out of Bible School, began a three-month bike trek to Italy in the summer of 1950 as a holiday and also to pass out gospels and tracts to pilgrims. This was the beginning of the story which led eventually to the opening of the first CLC bookshop—in Florence, Italy—in 1956, followed by others in eight more Italian cities.
