Veritatis Splendor

"Keep your eyes fixed upon Jesus, who inspires and perfects our faith" --Hebrews 12:2

Pope Benedict XVI before our Lord

And only where God is seen does life truly begin. Only when we meet the living God in Christ do we know what life is. We are not some casual and meaningless product of evolution.
Each of us is the result of a thought of God.
Each of us is willed,
each of us is loved,
each of us is necessary.
There is nothing more beautiful than to be surprised by the Gospel, by the encounter with Christ. There is nothing more beautiful than to know Him and to speak to others of our friendship with Him.
~Pope Benedict XVI, Homily April 24th, 2005

Compendium of the Catechism of the Catholic Church

It's online! In English!

Compendium of the Catechism of the Catholic Church

By the way, if you've got a few bucks floating around in your pockets, it would be great if you would consider purchasing a few copies of this and donating them to your parish's youth group, confirmation class, or RCIA.

*ALL* Catholics (and those interested in the faith) are meant to have this simple, easy-to-read catechism (the full Catechism is really meant for catechists and religious education leaders - it is really dense!). Thanks to the USCCB publishing house, this book is priced much higher than it should be (I guess because they went hog-wild in making it "look good" - probably also why it took 6 months longer to get to us than the rest of the world - instead of caring enough about getting the content to the people of God). So, many parishes and groups really cannot afford to buy copies of this book on their own for their students and catechumens. The fact that it is online now is a huge help, but it still would be far better for people to actually have the book in their hands.
