Monsignor Raffaello Martinelli's little leaflets

At the back of Saint Ambrose and Charles on the Corso in Rome there are always a few people around a display of leaflets at the back of the church. They are attractively typeset but that is all, they are free, for the most part a single sheet, designed for anyone to read on the bus, apparently 2 million have given away.
What they are is simply put catechetical leaflets in question and answer form on various aspects of the faith.
They are written by Monsignor Raffaello Martinelli Rector of the International Ecclesiastical College.

Richard Collins says they are on-line on the San Carlo website, see the side bar.

Thank you Richard.

I think they would be very useful on the back of a newsletter or used in a discussion group.

Many thanks for the link Father.

Mgr Martinelli is now Bishop of Frascati. He worked for many years in the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith and was heavily involved with the writing of the Catechism of the Catholic Church and the editorial team for its Compendium, so these tracts are absolutely faithful to the Magisterium without addition or diminution.
