The late Pope John Paul II asked the present pontiff, then Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, in 2003 to prepare a compact edition of the catechism published in 1992.
The late pope said the book should "allow people -- believers and not -- to embrace in one unified glance the entire panorama of the Catholic faith."
The compact catechism was expected to weight in at around 70 pages.
