This excellent pocket catechism provides a wealth of detailed guidance on, and explanation of, the Catholic faith. It explains Faith in God and the Apostle’s Creed, Hope and Christian Prayer, Charity as lived out in the Ten Commandments and other guidance of the Church. It also explains the Seven Sacraments, identifies the Christian virtues and their corresponding vices, and sets out the Christian’s Rule of Life and Daily Exercise. It also contains a section of common everyday prayers.

An excellent short Catechism, the edition I possess bearing the Imprimatur of Cardinal John Carmel Heenan. A concise, authoritative and clear exposition of the Faith, with a surprisingly extensive collection of devotions at the back. The booklet itself is robust and has held together over a lot of use and leafing through. I cannot recommend it enough.
