    In 2003 the Holy Father established a special commission, presided by the prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, charged with preparing a Compendium of the Catechism of the Catholic Church, containing a more concise and dialogic version of the same contents of Catholic faith and morals.
    Sometimes refered to as the Mini Catechism.
