Wishing you and your family a blessed and joyful day. ️🥚
———-•———- Seeing people happily went to church last night, sending online wishes to others make me remember the time i was in Mang Lang church, Phu Yen.
35km from Tuy Hoa city to the North, in An Thach commune (Tuy An district), located Mang Lang Church, one of the oldest churches in Vietnam, was built in 1892 by a Frenchman named Joseph de La Cassagne, whose Vietnamese name was Co Xuan by the parish residents here, he was the first priest of the Mang Lang parish in charge of building the church; this is also the place storing the first book of national language in our country. Alexander de Rhodes wrote here his Cathechismus in octo dies in Latin and Vietnamese (Quốc ngữ) and printed it in 1651 in Roma.
At the house, there are paintings depicting the execution of Andrew Phu Yen, drawn into Alexandre de Rhodes’ narrative; broken pottery, bricks of the chapel background where Andrew Phu Yen was baptized by Alexandre de Rhodes; a number of books and newspapers about Andrew Phu Yen. ️ (Source: En.baophuyen.com.vn + wikipedia)
Highly recommend you should go there by motorbike to enjoy the amazing landscape on the way. Shouldnt skip Gành đá dĩa on your plan because it’s on the same route with the church. —-
