Martyrdom is not only imminent it is a reality in our day. The twentieth century is the Age of Martyrs. There have been more men, women and children who have shed their blood for Christ in the twentieth century than in all the centuries from Calvary to the year 1900. Moreover, there is what the Church calls "white martyrdom". This means living a life of witness to the Catholic faith under constant duress and psychological pressure from a world that rejects Christ's followers even as it rejected the Incarnate Son of God when He came into the world in first century Palestine.
The Question Book for Catechists is a companion volume to Fr. John Hardon's The Catholic Catechist's Manual and is to
be used by those who are taking a home study program, training to be a Catechist. There are over two thousand questions,
testing your knowledge of the following: What does the Catholic Church teach about Christian faith, morals and worship;
why we act in accordance with what the Church tells us is the mind and will of Jesus Christ for those who believe in Him,
and how we are to share our own faith convictions with others.
