Cardijn’s classic ‘Challenge to Action’ relaunches

The Australian Cardijn Institute is publishing a new ebook edition of Cardijn’s classic “Challenge to Action.”

First published in Australia in 1955 by Geoffrey Chapman, Cardijn’s classic has remained out of print since Cardijn’s death in 1967.

Former YCW chaplain, Mgr Frank Marriott (above), from Bendigo, in Sandhurst Diocese, Victoria, will launch the book at a special online event that will take place at 7.00pm AEDT on Tuesday 8 December 2020.



The book contains several of Cardijn’s most famous speeches and writings, including his iconic “Three Truths” talk originally delivered at the First International Congress of the YCW in 1935, his 1948 lecture series “The Hour of the Working Class” and “The Young Worker Faces Life” from 1949.

It includes Cardijn’s keynote lecture to the First World Congress on the Lay Apostolate in 1951, a lecture that in many ways inspired and foreshadowed the Vatican II Constitution on the Church in the World of Today, Gaudium et Spes.
