Product Description

Revised in accordance with the official Latin text promulgated by Pope John Paul II, this second edition of the Catechism of the Catholic Church provides a complete summary of what all Catholics around the world believe. Using the tradition of explaining what the Church believes (the Creed), what she celebrates (the Sacraments), what she lives by (the Commandments), and what she prays (the Lord's Prayer), the catechism teaches Catholics their faith and non-Catholics what the Church actually holds to be true.

Publisher's Description

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 standard 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."
