This greatest of Catechisms was published after the great Council of Trent in response to the errors of the protestant revolt. Pope Benedict 16th, as a Cardinal, called it the most important Catholic Catechism. It was edited under the guidance of Saint Charles Borromeo and published by decree of Pope St. Pius V. It was used for centuries (with the approbation of many Popes) as an important part in the formation of Catholic priests. It is specifically written to instruct priests and religious, but as the introduction to the work says, this catechism is designed for, "such as have care of souls in those things that belong peculiarly to the pastoral office . . ." So it is intended ultimately for the instruction of all the faithful. It has been used extensively by the laity as a steadying guide in our confused age.

While it is not a complete and exhaustive explanation of every detail of every dogma, it is designed to present a basic and overall understanding which any Catholic should possess. At a time when many Church teachings are greatly misunderstood by many even among the faithful of the Church, The Roman Catechism speaks with an authority unparalleled by any other catechism due to its centuries of hallowed use and approval by so many Ecclesiastical authorities and Supreme Pontiffs.

It covers in detail the Creed, the Sacraments, The Ten Commandments and The Our Father.
