How can the Catholic Church be both hugely popular and widely scorned? How can it hold onto its ancient roots and be forever changing? This updated guide tells the story of being Catholic as Catholics themselves live their faith, every day of their lives.

Recent Catholic history, most notably, the death of John Paul II and the succession of Pope Benedict XVI
The seven sacraments
The present state of Catholic education, Catholic identity, and Catholic social teaching
