"With today's promulgation of the Latin typical edition... the task of composing the Catechism, begun in 1986, is brought to a close... The Church now has at her disposal this new, authoritative exposition of the one and perennial apostolic faith... Through the harmonious and complementary efforts of all the ranks of the People of God, may this Catechismbe known and shared by everyone, so that the unity in faith whose supreme model and origin is found in the Unity of the Trinity may be strengthened and extended to the ends of the earth."
