Start with the Catechism.

But don’t stop there.

In Verbum, the Catechism is a gateway to the Faith. The Catechism contains roughly 4,800 references to the Bible and other writings. The Verbum edition links 95% of these to their sources, and those sources open automatically to the correct page.

Explore citations

Start with the Catechism article on Baptism (CCC 1213-1284), then jump into the Documents of Vatican II (LG 17). Link from there into the Scripture itself (Mt 28:18-20) to see how the Bible is the basis of the Church’s teaching.

Use the Catechism as a companion to the Gospel

Verbum’s Cited By tool lets you use the Catechism as a guide through Scripture. Start from your favorite Bible verse and see everywhere it’s cited in the Catechism. You’ll discover Psalm 23’s mention of anointing is discussed with regard to the anointing of Confirmation: a sign of consecration.
