Thanks to eldest daughter of dadwithnoisykids for pointing out yet another little internet quiz.

Do You Know Your Baltimore Catechism?

Thank God that Brother Philip and the Franciscans who taught me used the Baltimore Catechism. Talk about God providing. When I was growing up in the '80's I had to endure much of the goofiness that was "modern" catechesis and music. I was taught by three Franciscans who had been sent to our little Catholic grade school and one to the Catholic High School. Many years later, I came to find out that these Brothers were sort of the "black sheep" of their Order. Their particular Order had pretty much gone nutty, and apparently they were ostracized to our school. Like I said, I only found this out 10 years after I graduated from that grade school.

I still remember Brother Philip making us memorize a set of definitions: "What is a Sacrament?"
"A Sacrament is an outward sign, instituted by Christ ..." (don't want to give away one of the questions on the quiz now).
I never knew what that came from, it was only in college that I recognized it when I saw the Baltimore Catechism.

My mother gave me the BC as an Easter-basket gift, and I read it on my own while I was getting taught mostly fuzzy catechesis in the 1970's.
As a homeschooling mom, I teach it to my three girls, and am still learning. It was my 13 year old Gabby who helped me write this quiz.Isn't it great how the Lord taught us even in the midst of 'nutty' religious? God is good!
Glad you enjoyed it, and congratulations on your perfect score!

Quiz was pretty easy and I'm not old enough to have actually had the Baltimore Catechism in school...though I guess reading the CCC does help.

Well, the Baltimore Catechism is a catechism of the Catholic Faith, so if you know the CCC well, you should know the answers to this quiz.
In spite of what many people think nowadays, the Faith has not changed since Vatican II.
The great thing about the Baltimore Catechism is that it is very straightforward and thus extremely easy to read. The CCC is good, but it can be a bit dry or technical IMHO
