{Transcriber's Note: This book is commonly known
as "The Baltimore Catechism No. 3" and is part of
a four volume e-text collection. See the author's
note below for the background and purpose of the
series. This e-text collection is substantially based
on files generously provided by
http://www.catholic.net/ with some missing material
transcribed and added for this release.
Transcriber's notes in this series are placed within
braces, and usually prefixed "T.N.:".}NOTE
These Catechisms of the Baltimore Series are
arranged on a progressive plan. No. 00 gives the
Prayers and Acts to be learned before the study of
the Catechisms begins:—No. 0 contains one half
the questions of No. 1; No. 1 half the questions of
No. 2; No. 2 one-third the questions of No. 3, and
No. 4 (an Explanation of the Baltimore Catechism)
furnishes much additional information with copious
explanations and examples.
The same questions bear the same numbers
throughout the series, and their wording is
identical. The different sizes of type make the
Catechisms more suitable to their respective
grades, smaller children usually requiring larger
print.
Apart from its educational advantages, the
progressive plan aims at lessening the expense in
providing children with Catechisms, by furnishing
just what is necessary for each grade; it aims also
at encouraging the children to learn, by affording
opportunity for promotion from book to book.
These Catechisms are intended to furnish a
complete course of religious instruction, when,
used as follows:
No. 00 for Prayer classes.
No. 0 for Confession classes and certain adults.No. 1 for First Communion classes.
No. 2 for Confirmation classes.
No. 3 for two years' course for Post-Confirmation
classes.
No. 4 for Teachers and Teachers' Training classes.
PREFACE TO NO. 3
I have been requested by several priests to
prepare an abridgment of the "Explanation of the
Baltimore Catechism" that would be suitable as a
classbook for children who have been confirmed or
who have completed the study of the Baltimore
Catechism No. 2. The "Explanation" itself contains
more matter than some of these children can
master and it costs a little more than many of them
can afford to pay. I have, therefore, selected from
the list given in the back of the "Explanation" a
large number of the more practical and important
questions, to which I have added others, with
answers, as full, brief and simple as the matter will
permit. These questions and answers are added to
those of the Baltimore Catechism No. 2, but with
such distinction in type that all may see they are
not a part of the Catechism prepared by theCouncil, but only a development of its meaning.
{T.N.: It is not practical below to mimic "such
distinction in type" that exists in the original book.
To indicate the questions prepared by the Council I
have added in braces their corresponding numbers
from Baltimore Catechism No. 2. For example,
question 130 below is question 1 in Baltimore
Catechism No. 2. Fr. Kinkead's supplemental
questions lack this double numbering.}
Whenever questions on the same subject are
repeated in the book their object is to bring out
some new point or to show their connection with
the subject-matter there explained.
