A must read and a must know for every true Catholic. ( )
  Joansknight | Nov 28, 2010 |
Commissioned by the Council of Trent, written under the supervision of Saint Charles Borromeo, and promulgated by Saint Pius V in 1566, it was the most comprehensive and authoritative statement of Catholic doctrine ever published. An important resource in our time of doctrinal confusion offering precise, simply-worded answers to questions about the Faith in a style different from more recent catechisms. This 1923 translation by the Dominicans John A. McHugh and Charles J. Callan is unsurpassed for accuracy and readability, and features many useful extras. All the doctrines of the Faith are expounded under four heads: The Apostles’ Creed, The Sacraments, The Ten Commandments, and the Lord’s Prayer. Includes a complete "Sermon Program" for Sundays and Feasts linking doctrinal material in the Catechism to the Epistles and Gospels. Contains complete texts of definitions and dogmatic statements since Trent, subheadings for ease of reading & quick reference, useful citations to passages in Saint Thomas Aquinas and others, translator’s introduction gives historical background, extremely detailed Table of Contents and Subject Index.
