From the 13th century to our own late 20th-century Catechism, scores of faithful priests, bishops, popes, saints, and even Church Councils have published succinct, reliable summaries of our Church’s perennial teachings: catechisms. Many souls risked their lives to publish and distribute these catechisms and now they are being collected into a gorgeous 20-volume, cross-indexed collection before being made digitally available.
Today’s guest, Aaron Seng, is the founder and president of Tradivox, whose mission is dedicated to “Giving Voice to Tradition”. Beginning with a story of anti-Catholic riots that vexed Bishop Challoner, Mr. Seng talks with Michael about the rich treasure of Catholic Catechesis, written down during turbulent times, to hand down the necessary truths of the Catholic Church.
If you’re looking to learn more about the lost, rich heritage of centuries of Catholic Catechisms, today’s episode will give you a brief introduction that will excite you to learn more about the treasure of Catholic Catechisms.
