As you journey through Credo: Compendium of the Catholic Faith – the most up-to-date “catechism” in print – this journal will help you unpack the riches of the Church’s teaching to  fruitfully receive, worship as you believe, and effectively live what Christ taught.

This companion resource to Credo is ideal for individuals or study groups, classroom instructors, retreat programs, and large-format presentations. Features include recurring elements such as:

  • Study: Key concepts that highlight each chapter’s main doctrinal points.
  • Reflect: Prompts to help readers apply chapter themes to their own life.
  • Discuss: Topically-related prompts to encourage group discussion.
  • Lex Orandi: Prayer from the Roman Missal reflecting a major chapter topic.
  • Lex Credendi: Chapter excerpt from Credo illustrating the same topic.

Space is provided for note taking throughout the journal to help you succinctly synthesize and personalize the wide-ranging summary of faith.

Journal chapters are aligned with the corresponding chapters in Credo. Highlighted in each chapter are key terms; questions to consider and discuss; a quote from Credo to ponder, strengthen your belief, and relate it to your life; and a relevant prayer from the Roman Missal to help you draw closer to God. 

Through reflection and discussion on Christian identity and doctrine and what Catholics believe, you will be empowered to testify to your faith. You will learn how to explain the principles of right moral action, grace, the sacraments, prayer, worship, and more. This aid will help you break open the treasure trove of our beliefs as reflected in Credo, and grow in your faith, enrich your Catechism class, or shape your homilies.

Sure to be a classic for generations to come, Credo: Compendium of the Catholic Faith offers a clear and readable summary of Catholicism as a whole, given in the pastoral style of the apostles. Using the simple and direct "Question-Answer" format so popular among instructors (and internet search engines), Bishop Athanasius Schneider shares a bold new articulation of timeless truths, while also engaging current issues with courage and kindness.

Treatments of several contemporary issues include: social media use, personal technology, science and evolution, just war, death penalty, gender ideology, modesty, vaccines, health mandates, world religions, true prayer, faithful parenting, schooling, religious liberty, free speech, female clergy, Church scandal, infallibility, magisterium, error, pornography, sex education, Sunday work, right worship, Communism, Freemasonry, globalism, transhumanism, charismatic movement, marijuana, drug use, authentic renewal, and more.
