Embracing the Catechism - The Back of the Book

My latest article at Today's Catholic Woman on Catholic Exchange is a primer on how to find one's way through the 200+ pages at the back of the Catechism of the Catholic Church.

Its waay more than just a general subject index. There are actually 4 sections.

The first is the Index of Citations that summarizes all the quotes taken from Sacred Scripture and Sacred Tradition. Everyone who ever has a reason to study the Catholic faith, or teach it, should familiarize themselves with it.

The citations index is followed by the comprehensive general Index, the Abbreviations pages (very helpful in doping out the primary sources of many church documents), and the ever-popular Glossary.
