What Are People Saying about this Title?
"As its name suggests, this useful book presents the fundamentals of the Catholic faith in a concise question-and-answer format. Produced by the always reliable Daughters of St. Paul -- their two-volume Saints for Young Readers for Every Dayhas been a staple of my family for years -- "Basic Catechism" includes straightforward explanations of doctrine, discipline, and customs. The section on the Eucharist is exceptional, as it provides pastoral answers to common questions like "How can Jesus be truly present at so many Masses at once?" An added pastoral dimension are the explanations (and ink illustrations) of the many items used during the celebration of Mass. What kind of wine must be used to celebrate the Eucharist? What are the cruets? What is a ciborium? a corporal? a pall? a paten? You'll find answers to all these questions and much more. "Basic Catechism" is a suitable gift for converts, high school students, and lightly-catechized Catholics. Highly recommended."
