book centers are focal points of apostolate. They are not commercial shops
but centers of service to the faithful. They do not sell but carry out an
apostolate for offerings. They do not have customers but cooperators. They
are not places of business but centers of light and warmth in Jesus Christ.
Their aim is not to make money but to serve the Church and people, not for
profit but for spiritual benefit. The book center is a temple; the religious
who serves, a preacher. Light, holiness, joy in Jesus Christ and Christian
life are the goals sought”. This is Fr. Alberione’s vision of
our book centers. Because we carry not only books but also other media products
in our centers we call them Media Centers."
