The Year of Faith and Verbum’s Catechism Collection

Year of Faith LogoThe Year of Faith was instituted as an opportunity for every Catholic to turn toward Jesus Christ, encounter him in the Sacraments—especially the Eucharist—and rediscover the Faith and the Church. During the Year of Faith, Catholics were asked “to study and reflect on the documents of Vatican II and the catechism so that they may deepen their knowledge of the faith.”[1]

Though the Year of Faith is over in a formal sense, it persists through the Faithful who are called to study the Scriptures and Tradition so as to deeper their faith.

Verbum’s Catechism Collection is the perfect way to engage the Church’s call to study the Catechism and conciliar documents. With the Catechism Collection, you get all the Vatican II documents, two Bibles, the Sources of Catholic Dogma, the Catholic Lectionary, and more.

The best part? It’s only $49.95.

Open up a new world of study possibilities.

CatechismIn Verbum, the Catechism connects you to the entirety of the Faith. Open the most important citations in the Catechism with just one click. Jump from the Catechism to the Vatican II documents, and from the Vatican II documents to Scripture or other important Church councils. Study the Church’s Faith with confidence. Make new connections between Holy Scripture and the doctrines and dogma of the Church.

The Year of Faith has ended, but only in name. In many ways, the Year of Faith is extending into the next year and beyond as the Church continues look to Christ as the “One Savior of the world” (Porta Fidei 6). And, in many other ways, the Year of Faith will echo well into the halls of eternity as those who have made a profession of faith this year continue to seek out the kingdom of God.

Continue the year of Faith well beyond 2014 with the Catechism of the Catholic Church Collection in Verbum. Get it today for only $49.95.
