Hundreds of words and phrases that are particular to our Catholic faith and tradition are defined and presented in an easy-to-use dictionary format. From ‘Abba’ to ‘zucchetto,’ Look It Up! is a resource every Catholic can use."
—Danielle Bean, senior editor of Faith and Family magazine and author of Mom to Mom, Day to Day: Advice and Support for Catholic Living
"Look It Up! is a great book for parents and teachers whose children wonder if an epistle is the wife of an apostle and ask why cardinals, and not other birds, gather in Rome for a papal election. This book explains Catholic words clearly, correctly, and in a way that children can understand. Every home and school should have a copy as a basic reference."
—Sr. Mary Kathleen Glavich, SND, religious educator and author.
