A Small Catechism for Catholics is now translated into English for the first time in 300 years! The Parvus Catechismus Catholicorum of St. Peter Canisius, written in the 16th Century, is now in print, with a new translation by Ryan Grant.  This catechism includes instruction on:

-The 3 Theological virtues and the Creed

-The Our Father, Hail Mary, and 10 commandments

-The Sacraments

-The Duties of Christian Justice (morals)

-Testimony from the Scriptures which support the Catholic faith.

-Artwork from great painters such as Raphael, Rubens, Rembrandt and Van Eyck.

This volume, the third and smallest of St. Peter Canisius’ small catechisms, formed a bulwark for the Catholic Faith after the Protestant Reformation in Germany.  Nothing else like it exists in English! This book also includes a foreword by Fr. Chad Ripperger, PhD.
