Benedict XVI reminded Catholics that the Catechism of the Catholic Church is “a precious and indispensable tool” for the task of evangelization. Those who study the Catechism will be able to give reasons for what they believe, and in this way, assist the numerous people who are experiencing a crisis of Faith in our contemporary society. Most dioceses of the United States require catechists to have a basic course on the Catechism of the Catholic Church. Those who achieve the CDU Certificate in the Catechism of the Catholic Church will have the confidence and ability to assist others in using the Catechism of the Catholic Church to find answers to questions about Church doctrine, liturgical life, Christian morality, and prayer.
