CATECHISM OF THE CATHOLIC CHURCH
AN IMAGE BOOK
DOUBLEDAY PUBLISHER
(A division of Bantam Doubleday Dell Publishing Group)
1540 Broadway
New York, New York 10036
U.S.A.  (No one should be without this major catechism. Simple to read, understandable, and thorough. Translated from the original Latin into English; complete with cross references to Scripture, Vatican documents, and papal encyclicals.)

BALTIMORE CATECHISM No. 3
THE NEW REVISED CONFRATERNITY EDITION
(An excellent review book for adults and families. It is the
old fashioned format of answers and questions. This is not a child's
edition. When comparing this catechism to the Catechism of the Catholic Church, the Baltimore Catechism is considered a "minor" catechism. However, it is quite thorough and intensive.)
by Rev. Francis J. Connell, C.SS.R., S.T.D.

A Warning to our readers with regard to currently published "minor" catechisms:  Since the publication of the Catechism of the Catholic Church, there have been innumerable editions of minor catechisms published which claim to be based on this major catechism. It should be noted that any catechism which makes this claim, and includes the copyrighted text of the CCC, must have a declaration from the Holy See granting permission to "reprint this Catechism or to translate it" from the original Latin text only into "another language" (cf. copyright page of CCC). Furthermore, since any and all translations must be based on the original Latin text, as copyrighted by "Liberia Editrice Vaticana, Citta del Vaticano", these translations are "subject to revision according to the Latin typical edition". Thus, if the original Latin text of the CCC is enhanced, revised or redacted for any reason then so must the translation be enhanced, revised or redacted accordingly and accurately. Such requirements by the Holy See insure the integrity of the translated text "in another language". Therefore, any catechism claiming to be based on the Catechism of the Catholic Church which contains translations from the CCC must be based on the original Latin text and must have a declaration of permission from the Holy See! To put it another way, any catechetical text purportedly derived from the CCC but based upon a translation from another language other than the original Latin text of the Holy See cannot be considered legitimate! Unfortunately, there are such catechisms and catechetical documents stating they are based on the Catechism of the Catholic Church but translated from French or other languages and not the original Latin text.  One such   example we recommend our readers stay away from is  "The Faith" by John A. Hardon, S. J. whose "references to The Catechism of the Catholic Church have been translated by the author from the French edition of this work" (cf. copyright page of "The Faith"). Obviously, with a "French edition" which is not the Holy See's copyrighted text, he cannot have a declaration from the Holy See as to its authenticity nor permission. Today more than ever, one must be prudently observant and not take anything for granted!

The encyclicals are written in such a fluid manner

encyclicals.)
