Whether we've been a Catholic our whole lives or just a few years, everyone can benefit from returning to our basic Catholic teachings. It never hurts to review the core tenants of what we believe and profess as Catholics. Even if we've been at this for 60+ years, the Holy Spirit can bring new insights and deeper knowledge so our love for God and His Church can continue to grow each day. 

Books on Basic Catholic Teachings: 

The Faith Explained by Leo Trese
