About this Book:
Structured around the four pillars of the Catechism of the Catholic Church-Creed, Sacraments, Morality, and Prayer-this guide presents the fundamentals of the Catholic faith in a handy Q&A format. Whether you are looking to learn the faith, grow in your faith, or pass on the faith, you will find that this resource captures Catholic Church teaching in a concise and approachable way. Content covers all of your questions relating to the faith: Does God exist? How should a Catholic prepare for confirmation? Are the Beatitudes truly practical? Why do we not always obtain what we pray for?
First published in 1980, this 8th edition of a perennial best-seller is updated to reflect the changes in the liturgy due to the revised Roman Missal and expanded to incorporate Church teaching on challenges facing the faithful Catholic in today's society.

What Are People Saying about this Title?
"Sister Mary Lea Hill, FSP, and Sister Helen Wallace, FSP give us a comprehensive explanation of the Catholic faith and a guide to living a faith-filled life that will benefit the scholar, the seeker, and all in between. The detailed, but easy to read, description of the Mass and the vestments and vessels used at Mass make this ideal for RCIA groups, but it belongs on the shelf of any serious Catholic."
Susan Abbott, Director, Office of Religious Education, Archdiocese of Boston
"With the publication of the 8th revised edition of Basic Catechism, Pauline Books & Media has once again provided us with a doctrinally sound and reader-friendly basic resource for anyone seeking to learn (more) about the Catholic faith. This is a great tool, especially for use by parents and catechists."
Richard J. Malone, ThD, STL, Bishop of Buffalo
"The Catholic Faith is big, beautiful, and mysterious. We can often feel like a traveler in a strange land as we explore it. Sr. Mary Lea Hill and Sr. Helen Wallace provide a wonderful service for both converts and cradle Catholics alike in this accessible guidebook for the wonderers and adventurers who seek to answer the call of Jesus from the heart of the Church."
Mark P. Shea, author of Salt and Light: The Commandments, the Beatitudes, and a Joyful Life
