Book Summary

In Being Catholic: What Every Catholic Should Know, Suzie Andres focuses on Catholic customs, traditions, and practices that are in danger of being forgotten but which have been, for centuries, the joy of Catholics to remember. Topics covered include:

  • The Seven Sacraments
  • The Layout of a Church
  • Details and Process of the Mass
  • Catholic Doctrine on Mary
  • The Communion of Saints
  • Angels
  • The Liturgical Year
  • Popes, Bishops, Priests, and Religious Life
  • Different Rites (Byzantine, Alexandrian, Latin, etc.)

"Cradle Catholic, Convert, or Curious Inquirer . . . you will quickly find there are more Catholic customs, traditions, habits, and points of etiquette than articles of the Creed, and so, for easier access, my bet is that you will find it handy to have all this lore in one 50,000 word document."
— From Being Catholic: What Every Catholic Should Know

“Suzie Andres, with characteristic insight and humor, has brilliantly put together in a single volume, an opportunity to embrace “a joyful remembrance” of some of the most beautiful aspects of our Catholic Faith and tradition. The conversational tone makes it a delight to read. When so much has been lost in our frantic, secularized culture, wise, friendly conversation about such substantial things, is sorely needed. I joyfully welcome and recommend this beautiful book!"
--Dr. Timothy T. O’Donnell, President, Christendom College
