Catechism For Parish Priests

Resource Toolbox

Also known as the Catechism of the Council of Trent, or the Catechism for Parish Priests, or the Catechism of Pius V. The preparation of such a work was ordered by the Council of Trent (1545-1563) and brought out in the year 1566, under Saint Pius V. The division of the subject-matter follows the four formulas: the Creed, the Sacraments, the Decalogue, the Lord's Prayer. Saint Charles Borromeo deserves the largest share of credit for the composition of the work. The Catechism is not a school-book, but a manual for the catechist and teacher. It brought about a much-needed uniformity of Christian doctrine and dealt a staggering blow to Protestant claims.
