How to explain the Catholic faith. Faith summaries on the internet

What is the Mass? How do you explain who God is? What makes marriage indissoluble? What does the Church have to say about honesty at work? What is the meaning of the sixth commandment?

These are some of the questions that receive a clear and direct answer in 40 brief texts that, under the heading “Summaries of the Faith,” have been published on the web page of Opus Dei. (The English version is not yet available.)

The order followed is that found in the Catechism of the Catholic Church: the profession of faith (topics 1-16), the sacraments (17-25), the moral life (26-38), and prayer (39 and 40).

The articles were written by theology professors from various universities. Using an accessible but rigorous style, the authors explain the teachings of the Catholic Church, with many references to Scripture, the Fathers, and the magisterium of the Church. In addition, the writings of St. Josemaría are referred to, which help bring the truths taught closer to the daily life of the reader.

At the end of each one there is a basic bibliography for those who want to go deeper into a particular topic.
