" A catalyst is not consumed in the course of a reaction"
Why is this true? I thought it was consumed but then is produced again?

Catalysits are not soncumed. Intermediates are consumed. For intermediates you see it as the product in one of the steps and reactant in another step, so it cancels out. This is not the case for catalysts, they don't "cancel out" in this way.
