This mass market size catechism is revised to conform completely with the official Latin text promulgated by Pope John Paul II in 1997. Eight million copies in print in 20 languages, a complete version of the new catechism.
The Catechism draws on the Bible, the Mass, the Sacraments, Church tradition and teaching, and the lives of saints. Includes a complete index, footnotes and cross-references for a fuller understanding of every subject.
Using the tradition of explaining what the Church believes (the Creed), what she celebrates (the Sacraments), what she lives (the Commandments), and what she prays (the Lord's Prayer), the Catechism of the Catholic Church offers challenges for believers and answers for all those interested in learning about the mystery of the Catholic faith. Here is a positive, coherent and contemporary map for our spiritual journey toward transformation.
