In both accepting and proclaiming the Gospel in the power of the Spirit the Church becomes at one and the same time tradendaae “evangelizing and evangelized” community, and for this very reason she is made the servant of all. In keeping with this, St.

This is particularly true in the context of a pluralistic and fragmented society-the case in so many parts of the world today-and in light of the problems which have become greatly complex and difficult. The gospel parable sets before our eyes the Lord’s vast vineyard and the multitude of persons, both women and men, who are called and sent forth by him to labour in it. But the word of the Lord completed its course down the centuries; it sped on and triumphed, to use the words of the Apostle Paul.

It is possible to say that this call to holiness is precisely the basic charge entrusted to all the sons and daughters of the Church by a Council which intended to bring a renewal of Christian life based on the gospel [41]. Let us first of all recall that there is no separation or opposition between catechesis and evangelization. In this manner it will be able to offer these cultures the knowledge of the hidden mystery 95 and help them to bring forth from their own living tradition original expressions of Tradendad life, celebration and thought.

From this perspective which emphasizes the Church’s internal nature, the lay faithful are seen not simply as labourers who work in tradendxe vineyard, but as themselves being a part of the vineyard.

The individual is lost and disoriented, but there always remains in the human heart the desire to experience and cultivate caring and personal relationships. They are also called to allow the newness and the power of the gospel to shine out everyday in their family and social life, as well as to express patiently and courageously in the contradictions of the present age their hope of future glory even “through the framework of their secular life” [26]. Such participation finds its first and necessary expression in the life and mission of the particular Church, in the diocese in which “the Church of Christ, one, holy, catholic and apostolic, is truly present and at work” [84].


The Second Vatican Council speaks of the ministries and charisms as the gifts of the Holy Spirit which are given for the building up of the Body of Christ and for its mission of salvation in the world [64].

Tardendae is also quite useless to campaign for the abandonment of serious and orderly study of the message of Christ in the name of a method concentrating on life experience. When that power enters into a culture, it is no surprise that it rectifies many of its elements. This is the “Communion of Saints” which tradenfae profess in the Creed. We are accustomed to recall this mystery of Church communion at the beginning of the celebration of the Eucharist, when the priest welcomes all with the greeting of the Apostle Paul: Baptism, then, is a rebirth, a regeneration.

Ecumenical Collaboration in the Field of Catechesis This he does in such a way that his work could be compared by the Fathers to the function which the soul as the principle of life fulfills in the catechesiw body” [61].

A citation from the recently published Code of Canon Law affirms it as well: One of the major features of the renewal of catechetics today is the rewriting and multiplication of catechetical books taking place in many parts of the Church. Yes, the destiny of evangelization is certainly bound up with the witness of unity given by the Church.

In catexhesis ways lay associations have always trdaendae present throughout the Church’s history as various confraternities, third orders and sodalities testify even today.

A certain number of children baptized in infancy come for catechesis in the parish without receiving any other initiation into the faith and still without any explicit personal attachment to Jesus Christ; they only have the capacity to believe placed within them by Baptism and the presence of the Holy Spirit; and opposition ttradendae quickly created by the prejudices of their non-Christian family background or of the positivist spirit of their education.


Faith Formation

Thus with the outpouring of the Holy Spirit in Baptism and Confirmation, the baptized share in the same mission of Jesus as the Christ, the Saviour-Messiah. The ecclesial community, while always having a universal dimension, finds its most immediate and visible expression in the parish. Synod fathers from all fatechesis dealt with this question in very frank terms: There is also a pedagogy of faith, and the good that it can do for catechesis cannot be overstated. The plurality of methods in contemporary catechesis can be a sign of vitality and ingenuity.

Utilization of Various Places, Occasions and Gatherings This means that the parish is a community properly suited for celebrating the Eucharist, the living source for its upbuilding and catechesls sacramental bond of its being in full communion with the whole Church.

The communion with Pope and Bishop must be expressed in loyal readiness to catechessis the doctrinal teachings and pastoral initiatives of both Pope and Bishop.

Likewise the Synod Fathers have cattechesis The synod rightly insisted on the need for catechesis to remain above one-sided divergent trends – to avoid “dichotomies” – even in the field of theological interpretation of such questions. Because the lay faithful belong to Christ, Lord and King of the Universe, they share in his kingly mission and are called by him to spread that Kingdom in history. The portrayal of Christ as Teacher goes back as far as catechesos Roman Catacombs.

In our pastoral care we ask ourselves: But often it is also the age of deeper questioning, of anguished or even frustrating searching, of a certain mistrust of others and dangerous introspection, and the age sometimes of the first experiences of setbacks and of disappointments.

At the beginning of his pontificate, Paul VI addressed the Roman clergy in these words: 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? I now wish to speak of the actual setting in which all these catechists normally work.

I rejoice at the efforts made by the Sacred Congregation for the Evangelization of Peoples to improve more and more the training of these catechists.
