The Catholic Life: A Simple Catechism
|Author: Basile, Alexander J.|
|Publisher: St Pauls Manila Philippines||Pages: 147|
THE GOAL OF THIS SIMPLE CATHECHISM is to lead the reader to reflect on the teachings of the Church in a prayerful way and to incorporate its insights into a lifestyle that is at once holy and fruitful for the individual and for society as whole. It has been purposely kept short and readable so that these teachings can be made accessible to as many as possible. Catholics are invited to witness to Christ, his Church and the Kingdom which he proclaimed. Thus it is important that they know their faith, for the more we know about Jesus and the catholic Church the more we will come to fall in love with the Master and his message and to see how the Church embodies his presence in the world in a wholly unique way. The Catholic Life, therefore, is meant to serve as reference guide for Catholics who desire a practical and straightforward overview of the faith and for all others who are curious to know about something about what the Church does indeed teach and why. May its content inspire greater joy and enthusiasm for Christ, his teachings and his presence in the Church.
