The original classic 'Penny Catechism' offers a simple explanation of the Catholic faith, explaining succinctly what Catholics believe in an easy-to-follow question and answer format.

From essential questions covering the basics of faith, such as "Who made me?" ("God made me."), this pocket catechism explores the key elements of the faith, from the Sacraments ("What is a Sacrament?") and the Creed ("What sis God?" "Where is God?"), to common questions about Catholicism ("Do we pray to relics or images?" "Why does the Catholic Church show great devotion to the Blessed Virgin?").

The book also offers guidance on living the Catholic faith, answering common questions such as "How are we to take up our cross daily?", while additionally offering common prayers, including an Act of Contrition, the Rosary and the Angelus, making this compact catechism an everyday essential for all Catholics.
