In particular she looks at come of the ways our Catholic faith was expressed before Vatican II and how our understanding has been enriched in the years since. A useful resource for catechists and teachers, for RCIA catechumens and candidates, as well as for adult Catholics who want a Catholic faith "refresher course."
