A Wonderful Catechesis

I was hesitant to purchase this after the craziness at the Synod. However, after the first few paragraphs, I was excited to read on, often reading passages aloud to my wife. I've encouraged many others to read this beautiful, concise, and grace-filled document. I will be encouraging my priest friends to facilitate parish studies as well.

family must read

Good workbook about the mission of the family and its place in the Catholic Church. Young families, newlywed families and those close to making that type of commitment should read this and use it as part of their discernment process.
