The Roman Catechism, Translated and Annotated in Accord with Vatican II and Post-Conciliar Documents and the New Code of Canon Law, by Robert I. Bradley, S.J. and Eugene Kevane. Boston, Massachusetts: St. Paul Editions, 1984, is a fascinating resource book.
On page 97, for example, we start "Chapter 9, on The Ninth Article of the Apostles’ Creed: I believe … the Holy Catholic Church, the Communion of Saints."
"1. Importance of Explaining This Article Carefully
"It will not be difficult to see how careful the pastor should be in explaining this Ninth Article to the faithful (see 1 Jn 3:1 and 2 P 1:4), if we pay attention to the following important reasons:
"First: As St. Augustine observes, commenting on Ps 30, the prophets spoke more plainly and explicitly of the Church than of Christ.
"For they foresaw that a much greater number may err and be deceived regarding the Church than on the mystery of the incarnation.
“Later times were to behold wicked men, imitative as the ape that would like to pass for a human being, who arrogate to themselves exclusively the name of Catholic; with shameless effrontery, they assert that the Catholic Church is to be found only with them.”
