I would like to have one of these near me. I've read some of it and found it comforting. Is there a good, reliable place to get one?
Try Amazon, quite a few there including a Kindle edition.

Baronius Press offers a nice edition:

This is the one I have.
It's probably online. google it
I have the TAN Books edition which is in a very readable font and has a very thorough 30-page introduction and the 18-page sermon program which lists sections of the catechism for each sunday of the year (1962 calendar). More expensive, but hardbound. The Catechism of the Council of Trent is something you'll wanna keep for a lifetime anyways...

To search, I use the one online:
The Catechism of the Council of Trent is available for free at:

Older translations at:

You can download any of these in different file formats.  I personally prefer the pdf file format, but there are also several others. 

IF you want the translation by
Fathers John A. McHugh, O.P. and Charles J. Callan, O.P., it is a clean copy, but only available in pdf file format at:

The great thing about downloading it to one's hard drive is that one can search the entire text in a very short time by either one or several words.

Of course, one can always print out the entire book after download it.

Happy Reading!

God Bless You!

Thanks you guys. I resisted buying anything online for a long time and I'm new to it. There are some things that are just hard to find anywhere though, except onile.
Go to Amazon. I was able to get an affordable soft cover one with Pope Paul III on the cover.
I have been hoping for a English translation of the Catechism of Trent, but as is expected, the answer probably continues as no.
