Saint Peter Canisius, Catechism of

Published in three forms: major (1555), minor (1558), and minimus (1556). The division of the subject-matter is as follows: Faith (Apostles' Creed); Hope and Prayer (Lord's Prayer, Hail Mary); Charity and the Commandments of God and the Church; the Sacraments; Christian Justice, i.e.,the shunning of evil and the doing of good. Through his catechisms Saint Canisius became the "mallet of heretics"; they were translated into every language in Europe and reprinted in countless editions, so that the name Canisius became synonymous with catechism.
