Probably every religion or nation can come up with members who have 'changed' the world. Obviously, we mean that they have changed the world for the better. <br> Why only mention Catholics in this book, you may ask. Well, first of all, I am a Catholic myself, who is proud of what my fellow Catholics did for the world. Second, what they all have in common is that they were inspired by Jesus Christ to do for the world what they did Jesus was their driving force with the Good News of the Gospel. Third, religion (or lack thereof) is an important part of what makes us who we are - including Catholicism. Fourth, the Catholic Church has a longstanding and outstanding tradition that makes for a powerful source of innovations for the world. The sixty Catholics mentioned in this book testify to it. Each one of them made a significant contribution. </i></tr></table> </tr> <tr><td> <br><h1 STYLE="text-align: center"><u>Table of Contents</u></h1> <blockquote><br> <img src=animated-globe.gif align=right vspace=10 hspace=20 border=3 width=330 height=260> <h3 STYLE="text-align: justify"> <i><PRE> 1.
