Free sample

 With clarity and insight, Archbishop William Lori of Baltimore helps readers discover the joy that comes from walking with Jesus and living our faith. Following the structure of the Compendium of the Catechism of the Catholic Church, Archbishop Lori explains what the Church believes and how we can best put those beliefs into practice in our everyday lives. In five questions following each chapter, the reader can reflect on the meaning of these truths for his or her own life. Among the topics covered are the Creed, the liturgy, the seven sacraments, the Ten Commandments, and prayer in the Christian life. 
This book provides a wonderful means to appreciate the beauty of the Catholic faith, thus renewing our zeal and desire to share the good news of Christ with others. 

Well suited for individual use or as a study guide for RCIA or parish-based faith sharing groups.
