The Penny Catechism ... revised!

The Mini-Catechism Revised and Edited by Brother Charles Madden OFM Conv.

388 Questions and Answers on the Catholic Faith. A revision of the Penny Catechism based on the Catechism of the Catholic Church with a new imprimatur

The Penny Catechism was consulted by GK Chesterton as he prepared to enter the Church-and by countless thousands of others over the years.

Originally approved by the Archbishops of England and Wales, The Penny Catechism has now been revised in light of the Catechism of the Catholic Church, American edition, issued in 1994.

Most of the revisions are in the form of additional questions and answers, especially in those sections concerning Divine Revelation and the Sacraments. Some revisions were made to conform to the terminology used in the Catechism of the Catholic Church. Others are simply changes to American terminology from the British terminology of earlier editions of The Penny Catechism.

This is a perfect book for missionary work, prison ministry, and apologetics. The classic question and answer format is a great way to learn Catholic doctrine. This is an official catechism with new imprimatur.

The Mini-Catechism is a concise summary of Catholic doctrine, fitting neatly in purse or pocket.

Brother Charles Madden, OFM Conv. was born in Baltimore, MD in January 1940, the youngest of eleven children. He is the author of “Freemasonry: Mankind’s Hidden Enemy” (TAN), “Giving Up Stealing for Lent and other family stories” (Requiem Press) and has written numerous articles over a 30-year period for Immaculata Magazine.
