The Catechism of the Catholic Church, Ascension Edition

Because you signed up for Catechism in a Year alerts, we'd like to introduce you to the edition that Fr. Mike will be reading during the podcast, the Catechism of the Catholic Church, Ascension Edition.

Note: This Catechism will only be able to ship to addresses in the USA due to copyright constraints. Estimated to ship the week of December 23, 2022.

This is the exact Catechism Fr. Mike Schmitz reads throughout the podcast, and it is the only Catechism in the world that has the Foundations of Faith approach built in!

The Foundations of Faith is the color-coded approach that the Catechism in a Year reading plan is based on, and gives Catholics a framework to understand the big picture of their faith.

It truly is the Catechism that teaches you how to read it.

The Catechism of the Catholic Church, Ascension Edition

The first Catechism in history to include a built-in, color-coded guide

How Catholics learn with this Catechism:

  • Carefully designed pages to make the majestic truth and beauty of the Catholic Faith readable, organized, and inviting
  • An original and specially designed color-coded approach that helps readers understand how everything in the Catechism is connected together
  • The Catechism at a Glance Chart woven within the text to show how the Catechism is structured and where to find key teachings of the Catholic Faith
  • Highlighted keywords and visual references help Catholics quickly identify major truths and easily find their place within the big picture of the Catechism
  • Dozens of callout boxes to highlight the books of Sacred Scripture and the writings of the Church that are the basis for the Catechism’s teachings
  • An exclusive, never-before-seen appendix, “Sources from Scripture and the Church,” with a clear introduction to hundreds of sources in the Catechism
