 Our Description


The Roman Catechism.

This catechism was compiled under the direction of St. Charles Borromeo and recognized as the most authoritative Catholic catechism. Leo XIII recommended two books-- the Summa and this Catechism--for all seminarians! Pope Benedict 16th, as a Cardinal, called it the most important Catholic Catechism. Originally designed to supply parish priest with an official book of instruction, it has been used extensively by the laity as a steadying guide in our confused age. New typesetting and beautiful hardbound cover.

The most well known catechism today, the Catechism of the Catholic Church (1994), has a nearly identical layout, but tends to use less concise and more ambiguous language. The Roman Catech Full Review...
