Catechism on the Splendor of Truth


by Rev. John A. Hardon, S.J.

The papal encyclical Veritatis Splendor (Splendor of Truth), was years in the making. Its purpose being to explain the dependence of Christian morality on the Catholic faith. What the Pope was at pains to point out is that modern man has lost his hold on truth. Truth, in Christ’s own words, is to shine forth and witness to the world. This “shining forth” may be called Christian morality. But it is authentic Christian morality only if based on the truth as revealed by Christ and in Christ, for He is the Truth. Freedom is good, but is not true freedom apart from the Truth.

This 53-page book, with its helpful index, reveals the meaning of freedom and truth, free will, the operation of grace, and many other concepts that are often misunderstood by modern man. Father Hardon's easy question and answer format, with index references to the encyclical itself, will win you back to the right path! Full text of the encyclical Splendor of Truth in magazine format included (while supplies last).
