The new What Every Catholic Should Know series is intended for the average faithful Catholic who wants to know more about Catholic faith and culture. The authors in this series take a panoramic approach to the topic of each book aimed at a non-specialist but enthusiastic readership. Previously published titles in this series include what every Catholic should know about Literature, Salvation, and God.
In Being Catholic: What Every Catholic Should Know, Suzie Andres focuses on those doctrines, customs, traditions, and practices which have been, for centuries, at the very heart of Catholic faith and practice. Topics covered include:
- The Seven Sacraments
- The Layout of a Church
- Details and Process of the Mass
- Catholic Doctrine on Mary
- The Communion of Saints
- The Liturgical Year
- Popes, Bishops, Priests, and Religious Life
- Different Rites (Latin, Byzantine, Alexandrian, etc.)
“Cradle Catholic, Convert, or Curious Inquirer . . . you will quickly find there are more Catholic customs, traditions, habits, and points of etiquette than articles of the Creed, and so, for easier access, my bet is that you will find it handy to have all this lore in one short book.”
—From Being Catholic: What Every Catholic Should Know
