This edition of "Catechism of the Catholic Church" is the complete official text approved by the Church and released in English in 1994. It is the first catechism in more than 400 years, featuring line-by-line explanations of every aspect of orthodox belief and "In Brief" summaries of each section. Drawing on the Bible, the Mass, the sacraments, traditions, teachings, and the lives of the saints, this book elucidates what Catholics believe, celebrate, live, and pray.
Here it is -- the first new "Catechism of the Catholic Church" in more than 400 years, a complete summary of what Catholic throughout the world believe in common. This book is the catechism (the word means "instruction") that will serve as the standarad for all future catechisms.
The "Catechism" draws on the Bible, the Mass, the Sacraments, Church tradition and teaching, and the lives of saints. It comes with 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.
The "Catechism of the Catholic Church" is, as Pope John Paul II calls it, "a special gift."
