Mar 16, Stephy rated it did not like it Recommends it for: I hardly know where to start. Parts of this book have the potential for much good in the world. Much of Christianity falls out based on the writings of Paul, the most successful, long term productive spy of all time.

Sent as a Roman spy to destroy the church of Christ from within, he kind I hardly know where to start. Sent as a Roman spy to destroy the church of Christ from within, he kind of steals leadership out from under the folks who Knew Jesus, declaring, and then making himself, and his words more import, historically, than those of any other biblical writer almost completely excluding Jesus' words.

The organization of the book makes it nearly impossible to follow a thought inside one chapter, much less connect it to another chapter. And written by men with their heads so deeply into their own importance that you can't believe much they say. Somehow I doubt that Jesus had in mind an annual washing of the feet of the largest donors to the parish annually when he said "As I have done, so you must do," to the disciples, having washed their feet.

So much is wrong about the way Catholicism actually functions. In no place have I found anything that addresses the fact that they are taking up special collections to bail out men whose lives are strictured into such an emotionally crippled state that they are turning to raping children to make sure they don't lean toward that most evil of sexual practices, intercourse dare we say making love with a woman.

There is so much done badly in a big way that the bits of real goodness are driven away: The good people, the good priests, the good sisters, the good altar servers the potential for evil befalling an altar server is too great to figure out in numbers. It's figured in millions of dollars. I have to stop now, this is too much evil to look at for very long, and I daresay the confused ramblings of this review are at least a match for the confused ramblings of the assorted people who built this book.

It makes me crazy, so much evil masquerading as so much good, being filthy rich and bemoaning the fate of the poor. Sell a few rings and feed a small nation, Pope Ben! Or better still, Sell a few rings and make a small nation self sufficient. And don't insist they become Catholic or die as the trade-off!

What inspired me to read this book was another book. Lewis' Screwtape Letters. The book opened my eyes to just how easily one can be led astray, no matter how Christian we believe ourselves to be. All of us slip, it's what we do, and the majority of us don't catch ourselves at it. I started reading this, because I truly want to answer these questions: What does it mean to be Catholic? If you do not follow the Vatican, are you still Catholic, even if you do live by the Apostle's Creed and th What inspired me to read this book was another book.

If you do not follow the Vatican, are you still Catholic, even if you do live by the Apostle's Creed and the 10 Commandments? There's one by the Vatican, and then there's another one by the U. Catholic Church Why is there a version exclusively for the US? Or is the U. Catholic Church different in some way from the other Catholic churches around the world?

This would directly contradict the word Catholic, which means universal. Perhaps the U. Catholic Church is following their own rules, and maybe this is the reason why many American Catholics have grown to reject the faith? However, like Orthodox churches, it is not in communion with the Roman Catholic Church or under Papal jurisdiction. So I was right! May 27, Tirzah Eleora rated it it was amazing. Not even Catholic, but never have I read a more comprehensive book on the Christian faith.

I started it almost a year and a half ago, but from what I remember earlier parts of it were often dense. Push through these bits!

Such quotes gave me a reassuring sense of history and humanity. The sheer number of sources is impressive as is the historical breadth of them. No century of the past 20 seems neglected or overemphasized. The unity of faith throughout the ages is awe inspiring. That being said, as a comprehensive presentation of the doctrines and life of the Catholic Church, it is necessary to be brief and to the point.

The Catechism is a great resource thanks to the thorough indexing and cross referencing.

If you have a question or are interested in a specific topic, it is easy to find the information you want. The book is written with paragraph numbers, so citations refer to those numbers rather than page numbers. To give you a taste, here's the section entitled "Wounds to Unity" paragraphs about the splintering of Christian churches: But in subsequent centuries much more serious dissensions appeared and large communities became separated from full communion with the Catholic Church - for which, often enough, men of both sides were to blame.

Catechism of the Catholic Church : Second Edition

Where there are sins, there are also divisions, schisms, heresies, and disputes. Where there is virtue, however, there also are harmony and unity, from which arise the one heart and one soul of all believers. All who have been justified by faith in Baptism are incorporated into Christ; they therefore have a right to be called Christians, and with good reason are accepted as brothers in the Lord by the children of the Catholic Church.

All these blessings come from Christ and lead to him, and are in themselves calls to "Catholic unity. Jul 20, Sancti Tomma rated it did not like it. Not only are those who hold this opinion in error and deceived, but also in distorting the idea of true religion they reject it, and little by little. Its books are divinely inspired and retain a permanent value,92 for the Old Covenant has never been revoked. He has never been pope.

He is asserting along with the antipopes that Judaism is a true religion. He denied defined Catholic dogma, he could not do that. Next We must deal with the fourth admonition, which concerns the removal of certain impurities by blessings and prayers which are included in the Euchologion. The words of the admonition are: However they are not attempting to observe the precepts of the old Law which as everybody knows have been revoked by the coming of Christ.

The first consideration is that the ceremonies of the Mosaic Law were abrogated by the coming of Christ and that they can no longer be observed without sin after the promulgation of the Gospel. Have you become blind? A pope who prayed with jews in the synagogue while awaiting the coming of the messiah, saying that the Old Covenant is valid. Something very wrong is happening.

The Catholic Church has created a marvelous book that just barely summarizes all of its teachings and official dogma from years of debate and refinement in such a beautiful way that renews my faith on the spot.

Since I'm familiar with a lot of the topics from extensive research but know that I'm still very much an amature regarding theology and philosophy , I can honestly say I was even more fascinated how every page resonated with the entire history of theological Christendom back to the days of the apostles and the writing of the Bible itself.

I think a problem of depreciation could arise from that however. While in this Catechism they do tell the reader the 'why', more often than not they do not give the full reasons 'why' which would entail more than a library of info. The Catholic Church is years old after all. The purpose of this book was to summarize, and that they did. But every Catholic should realize that, in reading this, you have only begun to know the true form of your faith. You have only read the basics.

Included in the book is also the official stances regarding mainly the Eastern Orthodox Church, and the difference between their conception of the trinity and ours,other denominations and faiths, salvation, Mary, the hierarchy or the church, morals, the sacraments, prayer, purgatory, etc.

One thing to note when reading this book is that a lot of the topics are spread out. I was kind of surprised as well when Mary popped up for like a page in the first pages and I was like "that's it? The same is with the Eucharist and the hierarchy of the church. But I digress. Ultimately, I went in thinking probably in the back of my mind that "I got this, I know all of it already! Some parts and lines were completely new to me and gave me a new dimension to the way I look at my faith.

I honestly assumed that if a priest is defrocked, their 'character' goes away too. But nope. I knew that the others were forever though Things like that. But it's honestly a marvelous book and I wish every Catholic had the time to read it cover to cover. View all 10 comments. Catechism of the Catholic Church 1 13 Jun 27, Readers also enjoyed.
