What is a catechism, and why
do we need one?
How was the Catechism written,
and by whom?
What does the Catechism mean
in our everyday lives?
Twenty years ago, in 1992, the Catechism of the Catholic Church was
approved and presented to the world by Pope John Paul II. The
Catechism draws on Scripture and Tradition to explain the
essentials of the faith. It guides the Church's sacramental and
liturgical life and provides inspiration for spiritual growth.
Drawing on the trusted and popular Catholic Update newsletter,
the Catholic Update Guide to the Catechism of the Catholic Church will
help you understand the history of catechisms in the Catholic
Church, and why Pope John Paul II decided to undertake a
revision of the Roman Catechism, which had stood as a
systematic presentation of the truths of Catholicism since
1566. Whether you're new to the Church or a lifelong Catholic,
this guide gives you an overview of this essential teaching tool
of the Catholic faith.
