This is an excellent resource for anyone, Catholic or non-Catholic, wanting to learn the basics of the Catholic Faith, especially in areas that would clarify uneducated assumptions from non-Catholic Christians about specifics of the Catholic Faith. It is also a good educational tool for those seeking to become Catholic, and a great refresher for Catholics needing to brush up on their basic knowledge and understanding of their religion and faith.
