Overview

Noted Washington, D.C. pastor and teacher Msgr. Peter J. Vaghi offers a simple introduction to Catholicism blending sound Catholic teaching with scripture, the wisdom of the saints, literature, and personal anecdotes to offer a synopsis of the faith suitable for lifelong Catholics and inquirers alike. Vaghi deftly explains how this oldest of the Church's creeds is not only a summary of Catholic beliefs, but an invitation to entrust oneself to God. Twelve chapters corresponding to the twelve articles of the Creed offer a fast-paced tour of the Catholic faith, with particular attention to sometimes neglected aspects distinctive to Catholicism. Questions for reflection and prayers are included for group and/or devotional use. The inaugural book in the Pillars of Faith series, The Faith We Profess: A Catholic Guide to the Apostles' Creed is an ideal resource for RCIA groups, adult faith formation, and Catholics of all ages wanting to reflect and pray on the meaning of their faith and to deepen their commitment to Christ and the Church.
