Catechism of the Catholic Church (contd.)The objective of the Catechism is to teach the truth of the deposits of faith handed down from the Apostles. One’s subjective reasoning on the faith of the Church today should be informed by this reality. Pope St. John Paul ii- “the deposits of faith is the mission which the Lord entrusted to his Church and which she fulfils in every age,” and it is in the grace of these deposits of faith that she offers her children the Catechism of the Catholic Church, so that they may grow in the love and knowledge of the one true God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
