With the Trent catechism, I feel like I am being spoken to by Our Lord Himself. I read this book during Adoration and get new insights with every reading. It's wonderful to finally receive the Truth, the whole Truth, and nothing but the Truth.
My only problem is that on page 445 it seems to backslide on usury by defining money as both capital and as useless money as a tool. So it says, in a footnote that seems to contradict the clear language in the text, that interest may be charged because "capital" is another tool in the increase in the amount of wealth. I'm not sure if this is a modern insert in a Vatican II abomination or not, the footnote is from what looks to be a modern book " The science of Ethics" by Cronin. The text itself says nothing about any exception. A bank or investor can agree to get a share of what increase in wealth that is made out of their investment but anything else is robbery. To demand repayment in full at a set time is natural and fine but to demand more than what is invested regardless of a profit or loss is made is slavery and immoral. A fixed fee that does not scale is fine as well, but usury is an iron hard form of pay me more than I loaned you regardless of anything that happens, this is slavery and robbery. This is the goal of usury, to not really care if they get the full amount back but to keep one paying and in debt ad infinitum and this is slavery and this was legalized criminality over centuries in the leading countries mostly Low Countries and England. This is not to even get to the criminal central banking scam that is much more insidious nor to get to the reserve banking scam either.

Better for priests and catechists than your average layman, but a must have.
