You may know the Catechism of the Catholic Church as an "organic synthesis of the essential and fundamental contents of Catholic doctrine, as regards both faith and morals" (11).
But did you know that the Catechism is also an invitation to friendship with God and neighbor - one that can change your life?
Believe Celebrate Live Pray: A Weekly Walk with the Catechism is a unique way to grow in faith by meditating, over fifty-two weeks, on the four pillars of the Catechism. This highly accessible and personal guide will help you apply the teachings of the Catechism to your daily life.
Each weekly reading includes a quote from the Catechism and an invitation to apply that wisdom to your life. Each one is illuminated by personal anecdotes, human interest stories, sacred art, the liturgical year, and the lives of the saints.
After Believe Celebrate Live Pray, you'll never look at the Catechism the same way.
