“The Catechism of the Catholic Church sums up the beliefs of the Catholic faithful, initiated by Pope John Paul XXIII in 1985 and first published in 1992. It is the result of very extensive collaboration; it was prepared in a spirit of complete openness and fervent zeal. Through it we can perceive the wonderful unity of the mystery of God, his saving will, as well as the central place of Jesus Christ, the only-begotten Son of God.
This book is given that it may be a sure and authentic reference text for teaching Catholic doctrine and particularly for preparing for local catechisms. It is also offered to all the faithful who wish to deepen their knowledge of the unfathomable riches of salvation. It is meant to support ecumenical efforts that are moved by the holy desire for the unity of all Christians, showing the content and wonderful harmony of the Catholic faith. The Catechism of the Catholic Church, lastly, is offered to every individual who asks us to give an account of the hope that is in us and who want to know what the Catholic Church believes.”
St. John Paul II
“When a man stops believing in God, he doesn’t believe in nothing, he believes in anything.”
“Always be ready to give a logical defence to anyone who asks you to account for the hope that is in you, but do it courteously and respectfully.”
1 Pet 3:15
“My opinion is that all those who lack knowledge of God are those who refuse to turn to him. The spiritual journey is for everyone!”
“In the first place it should be known that if anyone is seeking God, the Beloved is seeking that person much more.”
St. John of the Cross
