Catechism of the Catholic Church

The Catechism of the Catholic Church is detailed explanation of our faith, in clear language. It has an excellent index so you can look up specific topics that you want to know about.

YouCat

The YouCat is a Youth Catechism. It covers the same material as the Catechism of the Catholic Church, but in a "question and answer" style, that is very engaging. You can also look up topics that you are interested in, to find out what the Catholic Church teaches on them.

The Imitation of Christ Book by Thomas à Kempis

The Imitation of Christ is regarded as the most important devotional work in Catholicism, and it is the most widely read devotional work next to the Bible. Apart from the Bible no book has been translated into more languages than the Imitation of Christ.

The Imitation of Christ is a Christian devotional book, first composed in Latin (as De Imitatione Christi) ca. 1418-1427 AD. It is a handbook for the spiritual life arising from the Devotio Moderna movement, of which Kempis was a member.

Your Questions

If you have any more questions on any of the presentations, or the discussion at a meeting, or any other questions about the Catholic Faith, or about life, or any difficulties you are having in your life, please ask your questions.

You can ask your questions in the group at our meetings, you can write your question down and put it in the Question Box at our meetings and this can be anonymous (Fr. Jonathan will answer your question to the group at a meeting), or you can ask me, Fr. Jonathan, directly. I would be happy help you with any questions you have.

Brilliant theologians have been studying the questions of life for many centuries. This may be hard to believe, but it is extremely unlikely that your question or a variation of it, hasn't already been studied intensely. If I don't already know how to answer your question, I can get the answers from our great experts in the Catholic Church.

With blessings,
Fr. Jonathan
