About the Book
"It is with great pleasure that I recommend this little book that so well covers the spiritual, doctrinal and moral teaching of the Church.
It is written in a pleasant and very clear style and is the kind of book
I should love to have had when I was a Parish Priest ... this little volume supplies a very great need and could be a valuable reference book not only for teachers and parents but also for our young people ... I wish it every success." (From the Foreword by Gordon J. Cardinal Gray. retired Archbishop of St. Andrew's and Edinburgh)
