FRAGMENTS OF THE CATHOLIC TRUTH

Current topics of Catholic teaching that deal with current issues. Fifty leaflets - fifty questions. Each leaflet asks for an explanation on an issue of the Christian Faith and then answers the question. In less than two years, some 2 million of these leaflets were taken by visitors to the Basilica of St. Ambrose and St. Charles in Rome. The leaflets, obviously popular, contain relevant, fundamental and essential contents of what the Catholic Faith affirms.

You too are invited to read any or all of these extremely popular leaflets.

to the Virgin Mary"

  * Jesus Found in the Temple - Fr. John A. Hardon, S.J.
"It [the bible narrative] gives us an insight into how God's Providence deals with persons that He loves. And it finally tells us how, like Mary, we should dispose ourselves to respond to God's mysterious ways in our lives and in the life of the whole people of God."

  * Jesus Christ - (Catholic Encyclopedia)

  * The Family for the Third Millennium - Fr. John A. Hardon, S.J.
Our plan here is to prayerfully reflect on three areas of a subject that is as broad and deep as the ocean. We shall ask ourselves: What are the challenges facing the family in our day? Why does the Catholic Church offer the only solution to these challenges? How are we to respond to these challenges?

“The disintegration of the family, in one Western nation after another, is the result of disintegration of Christianity in these societies. As a once-Christian nation becomes de-christianized, the family in these nations begins to break down. The breakdown of the family in once-flourishing Christian countries is the consequence of a de-christianized society.”

"My first International Eucharistic Congress was in Wroclaw, Poland in 1995. A devout Polish priest, ordained in Krakow in the 1970s by Cardinal Karol Wojtyla, led a pilgrimage to Poland and the Czech Republic with the highlight being the 46th International Eucharistic Congress. The pilgrimage began out of a parish in Ft. Myers, Florida. As my renewed desire for the richness of my faith grew, I was enticed to go."

The Marian Catechists

  * The Marian Catechists

Around 1980, the Holy See asked Father Hardon to organize a catechetical training program for Blessed Mother Teresa's Missionaries of Charity as catechists. Later, Father Hardon founded an association, the Marian Catechists, so that any committed Catholic could benefit from these same training courses. He also provided comprehensive and indispensable guidelines for a member's spiritual life, the Marian Catechist Manual, available from Eternal Life. As the Marian Catechist Manual makes clear, a Marian Catechist's mission, active or contemplative, is to re-Christianize his or her little corner of a now pagan America. Blessed Mother Teresa's Missionaries of Charity, all of whom have taken the courses, give us some idea of the tremendous potential of the Marian Catechist Apostolate when reinforced by the Home Study Courses. If you would like to learn more about how to become a Marian Catechist or are just interested in knowing more about them, visit The Marian Catechists website for complete details.
