During the writing of the Catechism, the
commission, headed by then Cardinal Ratzinger, was in constant consultation with all Catholic
Bishops and their Episcopal Conferences along with theological and catechetical institutes worldwide. Thus it can be said that this catechism is the result of the collaboration of the whole Episcopate of the Catholic Church which resulted in what could be called a “symphony” of the faith. This monumental achievement reflects the collegial nature of the Episcopate and testifies to the Church’s catholicity.

Please pray for our catechumen and candidates—Golie Ebrahimian and her husband Brian Rentfro, David Jackson, Heather Strahan, Philip Blount,
Sam Meadors and Robert Martinez.
