Our Catholic faith is a gift from God. As the very first paragraph in the Catechism of the Catholic Church (CCC) states:

"God, infinitely perfect and blessed in himself, in a plan of sheer goodness freely created man to make him share in his own blessed life. For this reason, at every time and in every place, God draws close to man. He calls man to seek him, to know him, to love him with all his strength. He calls together all men, scattered and divided by sin, into the unity of his family, the Church. To accomplish this, when the fullness of time had come, God sent his Son as Redeemer and Savior. In his Son and through him, he invites men to become, in the Holy Spirit, his adopted children and thus heirs of his blessed life."

This document is intended for teaching younger children the Catholic Faith with the help of a parents or teacher. In particular, I am focusing this at ten year olds (the age of my youngest daughter). It follows the four sections of the CCC with an additional section on the Rosary and common Catholic prayers. Each section has a seperate table of contents at the beginning of the page.
This section also teaches about how we are to live our lives like Jesus, to conform our lives to his and how the Blessed Virgin Mary and the Saints are also role models for us.

Two more sections have been added as follows:
