Yesterday morning, Pope Benedict XVI presided at a liturgical celebration for the official presentation of the Compendium of the Catechism of the Catholic Church. During his homily the Holy Father said that ever since the publication of the Catechism of the Catholic Church in 1992, the need had been felt for a shorter ersion. He said: "This is certainly not a new catechism, but a compendium that faithfully reflects the Catechism of the Catholic Church which maintains intact, then, all its authority and importance, and will find in this summary a valuable support to become better-known and more widely used as a fundamental tool of education in the faith."
