Love and Responsibility — Catholic Online”. The homily should have its place not only in every Sunday and feast-day Eucharist, but also in the celebration of baptisms, penitential liturgies, marriages and funerals.

Catechesis cannot be dissociated from the Church’s pastoral and missionary activity as a whole. This article related to an official document of the Catholic Church ttadendae a stub. May the Virgin of Pentecost obtain this for us through her intercession.

How are we to enable them to know the meaning, the import, the fundamental requirements, the law of love, the promises and the hopes of this kingdom? What is essential is that the texts that are memorized must at the same time be taken in and gradually understood in depth, in order to become a source of Christian life on the personal level and the community level. But this is not all. Your work is often lowly and hidden but it is carried out with ardent and generous zeal, and it is an eminent form of the lay apostolate, tradende form that is particularly important where for various reasons children and young people do not receive suitable religious training in the home.

The theme designated by my predecessor Paul VI for the fourth general assembly of the synod of Bishops was: I express the fervent wish that, in response to a very clear right of the human person and of the family, and out of respect for everyone’s religious freedom, all Catholic pupils may be enabled to advance in their spiritual formation with the aid of a religious instruction dependent on the Church, but which, according to the circumstances of different countries, can be offered either by the school or in the setting of the school, or again within the framework of an agreement with the public authorities regarding school timetables, if catechesis takes place only in the parish or in another pastoral center.

For all the more reason one must avoid presenting as certain things which are not. Moreover certain cultures still set great value on memorization. Again, many pre-adolescents and adolescents traendae have been baptized and been given a systematic catechesis and the sacraments still remain hesitant for a long time about committing their whole lives to Jesus Christ – if, moreover, they do not actechesi to avoid religious education catechsi the name of their freedom.

In fact, even in places where objective difficulties exist, it should be possible to arrange school timetables in such a way as to enable the Catholics to deepen their faith and religious experience, with qualified teachers, whether priests or lay people.

It saw in catechetical renewal a precious gift from the Holy Spirit to the Church of today, a gift to which the Christian communities at all levels throughout the world are responding with a generosity and inventive dedication that win admiration.


On the contrary, the supreme rule is that the great advances in the science of language must be capable of being placed at the service of catechesis so as to enable it really to “tell” or “communicate” catecbesi the child, the adolescent, the young people and adults of today the whole content of doctrine without distortion.

Care will then be taken that every effort is made to ensure that the presentation is truly objective and free from the distorting influence of ideological and political systems or of prejudices with claims to be scientific. If conceived in this way, catechesis goes beyond every form of formalistic moralism, although it will include true Christian moral teaching. The Apostolic Exhortation Evangelii nuntiandi of December 8,on evangelization in the modern world, rightly stressed that evangelization – which has the aim of bringing the Good News to the whole of humanity, so that all may live by it – is a rich, complex and dynamic reality, made up of elements, or one could say moments, that are essential and different from each other, and that must all be kept in view simultaneously.

A technique is of value in catechesis only to the extent that it serves the faith that is to be transmitted and learned; otherwise it is of no value. This is true even of young seminarians and young religious, and of all those called to the task of being pastors and catechists.

Renewal is sometimes unequal in value; the synod fathers realistically recognized, not only an undeniable advance in the vitality of catechetical activity and promising initiatives, but also the limitations or even “deficiencies” in what has been achieved to date.

Ecumenical Collaboration in the Field of Catechesis The faith of these adults too should continually be enlightened, stimulated and renewed, so that it may pervade the temporal realities in their charge.

But tradendas word of the Lord completed its course down the centuries; it sped on and triumphed, to use the words of the Apostle Paul.

To continue the series of receivers of catechesis, I cannot fail to emphasize now one of the most constant concerns of the synod fathers, a concern imposed with vigor and urgency by present experiences throughout the world: The same must be said of hermeneutics with respect to exegesis.

Children and young people who are physically or mentally handicapped come first to mind. This gives rise to a second remark. For your part, priests, here you have a field in which you are the immediate assistants of your Bishops. If catechesis is done well, Christians will be eager to bear witness to their faith, to hand it on to their children, to make it known catecbesi others, and to serve the human community in every way.

Such experiences have a theological foundation in the elements shared by all Christians.

The irreducible originality of Christian identity has for corollary and condition no less original a pedagogy of the faith. In order that these works may correspond with their aim, several conditions are essential: Next we see a striking fact: In the understanding expounded here, catechesis keeps the entirely pastoral perspective with which the synod viewed it. This realization, based on the text quoted above and on many other passages of the New Testament, convinces us of two things.


Retrieved from ” https: It is pleasant to see that Catholic organizations especially dedicated to young handicapped people contributed to the synod a renewed desire to deal better with this important problem.

The parents themselves profit from the effort that this demands of them, for in a catechetical dialogue of this sort each individual both receives and gives. But those who study are bound to bear the stamp of their studies, to be introduced to cultural or moral values within the catchesi of the establishment in which they are taught, and to be faced with many ideas met with in school. Accept therefore what I say to you from my heart. AAS 60 lpp.

In the beginnings of Christian catechesis, which catexhesi with a civilization that was mainly oral, recourse was had very freely to memorization.

Love and Responsibility – Wikipedia

Making herself day after day a disciple of the Lord, she earned the title of “Mother and Teacher. How are we to reveal Jesus Christ, God made man, to this multitude of children and young people, reveal Him not just in the fascination of a first fleeting encounter but through an acquaintance, growing deeper and clearer daily, with Him, His message, the plan of God that He has revealed, the call He addresses to each person, and the kingdom that He wishes sspaol establish in this world with the “little flock” 87 of those who believe in Him, a kingdom that will be complete only in eternity?

In any case, catechesis always has reference to the sacraments. Let the communities dedicate as much as possible of what ability and means they have to the specific work of catechesis. The synod fathers were indeed inspired when they asked that catechrsi should be taken not to reduce Christ to His humanity alone or His message to a no more than earthly dimension, but that He should be recognized as the Son of God, the Mediator giving us in the Spirit free access to the Father.

Among the adults who need catechesis, our pastoral missionary concern is directed to those who were born and reared in areas not yet Christianized, and who have never been able to study deeply the Christian teaching that the circumstances of life have at a certain moment carechesi them to come across. This is a source of responsibility and also of comfort. With regard to the content of catechesis, three important points deserve special attention today.

Pedagogy of faith is not a question of transmitting human tradnedae, even of the highest kind; it is a question of communicating God’s revelation in its entirety.
