We’ve long enjoyed reading these Catechisms, answering the questions and chatting about the material.
Always a Confirmation gift for each of our children. We researched before deciding upon this translation.
Compilation of 4 of Biffi’s books; Prayer, Apostles Creed, Sacraments and Ten Commandments. Excellent for understanding of the truths in the Apostles Creed, deeper understanding of the Sacraments and Ten Commandments.
The First Sacraments – Inos Biffi
Aimed at the older child, very detailed and thorough. Plenty of historical information.
My Path to Heaven – Fr Geoffrey Bliss
A mini-spiritual retreat, reflective. Loved it!
Brief with lots of catechism questions.
Faith & Life- 5
Not our favourite series;dry and dull, however there are a few relevant chapters.
Spreading and Defending the Faith – Image of God Series
Parts of this are perfect, parts are too old for 9-12 year olds, a large part focuses on ‘Service’ an American emphasis not an Australian emphasis, also there is a ‘Soldier of Christ’ component which doesn’t totally encompass today’s understanding. However there is enough in this book that I can work with.
To be honest I recently purchased this and was disappointed, nice but not the book.
An engaging, living catechism. Princess loved this book. I have read previously to older children and it is excellent.
King of the Golden City
A wonderful allegory, spiritually reflective. Highly recommended by my 12 year old.
A 30 page workbook, with excerpts from the Bible and the CCC. Read and answer the various exercises, a great way to be sure to cover the basics. Our girls are enjoying the workbook approach.
