In this episode of This is Catholicism, Father Philip Eldracher discusses the Holy Ghost, the gifts of the Holy Ghost, and the presence of the Holy Ghost.
A Complete Catechism of the Catholic Religion by Father Joseph Deharbe, S.J. was originally written in German, was very popular in the 19th century, and was translated into English. Bishop Donald Sanborn finds the Deharbe Catechism to be the most complete to convert and instruct people in the Catholic Faith.
