If you can remember "Where is Thumbkin?", you can learn to summarize the content of the Catechism of the Catholic Church. Really.

Amazing Catechists has my column, "You & Me & the CCC." This time around, I'm sharing one of my favorite ways to summarize the content of the Catechism of the Catholic Church... to the tune of the familiar nursery rhyme, "Where is Thumbkin?"  Don't ask me to explain it here. Go there and check it out! (There's other good stuff from a host of catechists writing on various subjects.)


  1. Ha. I don't know that nursery rhyme (culture void and all that mess). Can I say I read this totally enraptured, pointing my fingers and thinking about it? Nicely done!

  2. To those who missed this delightful ditty in childhood, return for a moment to nursery school and get, ahem, "schooled":

  3. Pat,

    This is great! Thanks for the post!
