After the Council of Trent, theologians wrote the Roman Catechism, which was approved by the Pope, St. Pius V, in 1566. The book included a short summary of everything Catholics needed to know about their faith. It was easier to read and more complete than the Decrees of the Council of Trent, and it became the basis of most later Catechisms for priests or Jay people. The Roman Catechism was one of the most useful teaching aids during the Catholic Reformation.

We can be thankful for John Paul II and the CCC that came about during his pontificate as well, for the same reasons mentioned above. In fact, it was instrumental in bringing me to the Catholic Church.

By the way, I trust the "Jay people" is just a typo. I knew there were "Cardinals" in the Church but I hadn't heard of the "Jay people."
