Get Prepared - Study & Teach the Catechism!
 
We recentlly celebrated the 20th anniversary of the publication of the Catechism of the Catholic Church (CCC).
Deeper undertanding of the Catholic Faith will help you become much more effective with evangelization.
Take time and dig more deeply into the gift of the Catechism as the universal standard of our Catholic Faith and
as the authentic interpretation of the Second Vatican Council in matters of faith and morals. Here are a few
ideas for educating yourself on the Catechism!
 
Books
 
Nothing can substitute for the CCC itself. My favorite printed version is Doubleday’s CCC. You can
also find it online. And if you are interested in accessing every footnote referenced in the CCC, you
need look no further than the magisterial The Companion to the Catechism of the Catholic Church: A
But just in case you think the original is too long, the Vatican put out a condensed version called
 
Nothing can match the pith and wit of Peter Kreeft, and his Catholic Christianity: A Complete Catechism
very accessible as a summary and mild interpretation of the CCC.
 
The CCC was written as a standard for more local catechisms to be created in various parts of the world.
The U.S. Bishops put out an engaging and interesting adult catechism based on the CCC called United
States Catholic Catechism for Adults. Very useful for study groups.
 
If you buy and read Living the Catechism of the Catholic Church: The Creed by Christoph von Cardinal
Schönborn you will be getting not only a rich commentary on the CCC, but also insights from the man
whose influence loomed large in the writing and final editing of the CCC! Also look for his other two
commentaries on the Sacraments and Prayer sections of the CCC.
 
A wonderful and concise elaboration on the CCC’s treatment of the Commandments is The
 
Video
 
Catechism of the Catholic Church DVD. Cardinal Christoph Schönborn presents a 6-part series that
covers the history of the Catechism, then reviews the four pillars of the Catechism: what we believe
(Creed), celebrate (Sacraments), live (Commandments) and how we pray (Prayer).
 
Audio
 
Cardinal Francis Arinze offers an amazingly complete series of commentaries on the CCC that are
available for free download at the Apostolate for Family Consecration.
