The Church has always provided guidance in answering these kinds of questions and supported the continued responsibility that Catholic colleges and universities have in contributing to society through the influence and training of the Christian mind.

El hambre de fe de los católicos sigue creciendo. El papa Benedicto XVI da a la Iglesia el "alimento" que busca en las 598 preguntas y respuestas contenidas en el Compendio del Catecismo de la Iglesia Católica. Este volumen, de 200 páginas, ofrece una rápida sinopsis del contenido esencial de la fe tal como está promulgado en el Catecismo de la Iglesia Católica. Como el Catecismo de 1992, el Compendio tiene una estructura de cuatro partes, e incluye una sección sobre oraciones comunes y fórmulas doctrinales católicas. Gracias al formato de preguntas y respuestas, los líderes catequéticos -padres, párrocos, maestros, directores y catequistas- tienen la oportunidad singular de dialogar con los fieles, y revigorizar la misión permanente de la Iglesia de evangelizar y catequizar. Los individuos pueden llegar a "conocer las insondables riquezas del misterio salvífico de Jesucristo", leyendo, usando y memorizando partes del Compendio del Catecismo. Una herramienta esencial para jóvenes y adultos jóvenes, el Compendio es el acompañante perfecto de la Biblia, lectura espiritual o libro de texto de un joven o adulto joven. Los líderes catequéticos de las escuelas secundarias, universidades y parroquias apreciarán su versatilidad, como libro de referencia, promotor del debate o recurso central para programas RICA.

his 200-page volume offers a clear synopsis of the essential contents of the faith as promulgated in the Catechism of the Catholic Church in 598 questions and answers. Like the 1992 Catechism, the Compendium has a four-part structure and includes a section on common prayers and Catholic doctrinal formulas. Because of the question-and-answer format, catechetical leaders-parents, pastors, teachers, principals, and catechists-have a unique opportunity to dialogue with the faithful and to reinvigorate the Church's ongoing mission of evangelization and catechesis. Individuals can come "to know the unfathomable riches of the salvific mystery of Jesus Christ" by reading, using, and memorizing parts of the Compendium of the Catechism. An essential tool for youth and young adults, the Compendium is the perfect compatnon to a youth's or young adult's Bible, spiritual reading, or textbook. Catechetical leaders in high schools, colleges, and parishes will appreciate its vitality-as a reference book, discussion starter, or core resource for RCIA programs.
