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 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.
Building Something Beautiful For God –
To Last A Thousand Years
Our Lady of Clear Creek Abbey is a Benedictine community belonging to the Solesmes Congregation and, like other monasteries of the Solesmes Congregation, is to be counted among the institutes entirely ordered towards contemplation. It was founded in 1999 from the Abbey of Our Lady of Fontgombault in France and is located in the Diocese of Tulsa, Oklahoma. Clear Creek became an abbey in 2010 and counts 55 monks, who devote themselves to God alone in the hidden life, in silence and solitude, in constant prayer and willing penance.
After twenty years of existence, we are happy, by the grace of God, to have completed two large buildings and a sizable portion of our abbatial church. We started building the “Chapter House” to accommodate the growing number of monks and provide a Sacristy, Infirmary, classrooms and the Chapter itself. Please help us continue this arduous, but important work for the glory of God.
