The Faith of Our Fathers, by Cardinal Beecher and Archbishop Benson, is the perfect resource for Catholics looking to explore the beauty and timelessness of the Catholic faith. It’s a book that explains the fundamental tenets of Catholicism, from Communion under one kind to priestly celibacy. Its historical background provides an in-depth examination into Catholicism — now improved with more recent scholarship. With insights from two great religious leaders, this book provides readers with clear explanations on why we maintain a commitment to our faith and its traditions.
This publication was initially released in 1876, during a time when there was much fear and distrust towards Catholics in the United States. Still, it’s sold over 1.4 million copies in 40 years and has been consistently reprinted ever since. The clear writing style makes it completely accessible while delivering its core message: one should remain devoted and unswerving from their Catholic faith even if times get tough. In this work of faith — now modified with recent studies for enhanced accuracy— readers will be inspired to stick to their beliefs and uphold tradition at all costs.
