This book cuts through the confusion experienced by many Catholics and non-Catholics alike as they relate to the Church and its teachings on a whole array of topics that affect their lives, their families and their worship. Chapters cover such things as human cloning, contraception, in-vitro fertilization, organ donation, living wills and end-of-life care, as well as a whole variety of other medical issues. Weddings (mixed and otherwise), matrimonial concerns (divorce and remarriage, etc.), the making and raising of babies, the sacraments of the Church (Baptism, Confession, Holy Communion, Confirmation, Marriage, Holy Orders and the Anointing of the Sick), some moral and theological matters such as mortal and venial sins, heaven, hell and purgatory, and even points of apologetics (Papal authority, the role of the saints, Church documents, the relationship of the Church with other ecclesial communities, etc.). It also contains an extensive appendix to serve as a handy resource. The Imprimatur for this work has been granted by Justin Cardinal Rigali, Archbishop of Philadelphia.
