I want every Catholic to have this catechism - Cardinal Cormac Murphy O'Connor
posted on 23 April 2007
Copies of the Compendium of the Catechism of the Catholic Church, published by CTS are available from the Agency for Evangelisation at a reduced cost of £5 (plus P&P).
What people have said about the Compendium:
At the Mass where the Compendium was presented, the Papal Nuncio, Archbishop Sainz Munoz expressed the hope that the people of God in the dioceses of England and Wales would find it a helpful means to appreciate even more the beauty of faith and the logic of our way of life.
Cardinal Cormac reminded his listeners that it is not intended to replace but rather to re-awaken interest in the 1992 Catechism. He called the new Compendium a portable and accessible guide to the treasures of Catholic tradition, in the classical format of a dialogue between pupil and master. In emphasising the importance of the Compendium, Cardinal Cormac stated, 'I want every Catholic to have this catechism'.
