Illustrated Catechism – Inos Biffi
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.
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.
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.
