PILLARS OF CATHOLICISM

A free crash course on the Fundamentals of the Catholic Faith


Marking the 50th anniversary of the Second Vatican Council, Pope Benedict XVI declared 2012-2013 “The Year of Faith.” In particular, the Holy Father called upon all Catholics to confront what he identified as one of the most difficult challenges the Church faces today: “religious illiteracy.” That is, a lack of understanding about what Christians really believe. To address this problem, Pope Benedict called upon Catholics to spend the year studying the Catechism of the Catholic Church, the official compendium of all Catholic teaching. Now Pope Francis has taken up the same call, for a deeper formation of Catholics in the tenets of our faith. Pillars of Catholicism is our response. 13 videos that summarize the principal beliefs upon which the Catholic faith is built.
