We recently had the unique opportunity to rescue the last remaining copies of the Precis of Official Catholic Teaching. The Precis* (or summary) is a thirteen volume series that puts the authentic teachings of the Catholic Church at your fingertips. What could take hours of searching, even on the internet, is provided in this “short cut” to the minds of Popes and Councils. The Precis complements the Catechism of the Catholic Church. The Catechism is the compendium of Catholic doctrine; the Precis applies this doctrine to Christian living throughout 2000 years.
“The Precis marvelously complements the Catechism of the Catholic Church. The Catechism is the compendium of Catholic doctrine; the Precis applies this doctrine to Christian living throughout 2000 years.” – Professor William E. May, John Paul II Institute
This collection of Council documents, Papal letters, encyclicals and documents by the dicasteries (up to the year 2005), are compact, 5”x 8” volumes, arranged according to topic, and condensed to core content and referenced by document and paragraph number. They offer quick access to the true teachings of the Church. These books have been used in over 50 countries and will be a precious resource for all Marian Catechists.
In order to make these accessible to every Marian Catechist, we are making them available to you at the greatly discounted price of $50.00 per set ($150 value). If you are inclined to offer more, we are always in need of funds for our office expenses, but we feel it is important to get these books out to our catechists especially in these times when perhaps, we may not have internet service available for religious purposes. Donations can be made on our Home Page (Support button)
The series is no longer published and we have a limited number of 12 Volume sets still available for purchase (Volume 3 is not included in the remaining sets).Disclaimer: Though none of the books are used, a few of the volumes are not in pristine condition due to past storage conditions.
Place your order today to take advantage of this special offer! Contact the Marian Catechist Apostolate at 608-782-0011 or email our office at Bookstore@MarianCatechist.com for more information.
*History of the Precis: In 1986, George “Pat” Morse and his wife, Margaret, began producing, with magisterial and ecclesiastical approval and support, these clear, concise and orthodox summaries of Church teaching in the Precis. When they met Pope Saint John Paul II on December 7, 1992, he acknowledged and praised this publication and told George and Margaret:
“Your work is very important to the Catholic Church. What you are doing is for future generations.”
– Pope Saint John Paul II
George Morse, was an attorney. He served in security and intelligence positions during his 31 years in the Federal Government. While in the Army in World War II, he served with the Office of Strategic Services (OSS) as Aide to General William (“Wild Bill”) Donovan, Director of OSS. He also served on the staff of Supreme Court Justice Robert Jackson, Chief Prosecutor at Nuremberg. Though George has passed away, he left behind this invaluable series that we can use for teaching, research and education.
