This second version of the international phenomenon has been dramatically enhanced, improving both its substance and accessibility. This version, revised in conformity with the official Latin text proclaimed by Pope John Paul II in 1997, now includes over a hundred more pages, including new additions such as a glossary of words, an index of citations from sources, and in-brief sections on fundamental principles. The main aspects of religion are given in a clear and comprehensible manner, allowing anybody to read and understand what the Church confesses, celebrates, lives, and prays in her everyday existence. In the words of Pope John Paul II, the second edition of the Catechism is "a sure norm for teaching the faith" and an "authentic reference text."
