Thus catechesis in pursuing this objective should give a clear exposition of all the Church’s doctrine and avoid formulations or catequess that might give rise to error. Knowledge of the faith is significant.
Catechesis, by definition, is nothing other than the living and meaningful transmission of these “documents of faith”.
This option is not exclusive” but implies “a commitment to justice, according to each individual’s role, vocation and circumstances”. This “Yes” to Jesus Christ, who is the fullness of the revelation of the Father is twofold: The Magisterium of the Church, sustained by the Holy Spirit and endowed with “the sure charism of truth”, 96 exercises the function of “authentically interpreting the word of God”.
They are fervent in their faith and in Christian living. It also implies “a suitable knowledge of other confessions”, with which there are shared elements of faith: The Church, and in her name, every catechist can say with truth: These, however, always refer to works: To prepare such witnesses, it is necessary for the Church to develop a profoundly religious catechesis, nourished on the Gospel, which will deepen man’s encounter with God and forge a bond of permanent communion with Him.
The conditions of the soil into which it falls vary greatly. In some instances tendentious positions have been adopted and set in opposition to the interpretation and application of the renewal sought in the Church by the Second Vatican Council. The Church, “universal sacrament of salvation”, born of the Holy Spirit, transmits Revelation through evangelization; she announces the Good News of the salvific plan of the Father and in the sacraments, communicates his Diving gifts.
In this way catechesis, situated in the context of the Church’s mission of evangelization and seen as an essential moment of that mission, receives from evangelization a missionary dynamic which deeply enriches it and defines its own identity.
The structure of the Catechism of the Catholic Church derives from the profound unity of the Christian life.
The Church, in professing her faith in the Trinity and by proclaiming it to the world, understands herself as “a people gathered together in the unity of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit”. The thirty-year period between the conclusion of the Second Vatican Datequesis and the threshold of the third millennium is without doubt most providential for the orientation and promotion of catechesis. In order to express its vitality and to be efficacious, catechesis today needs to undertake the following challenges and directions:.
Both instruments, each taken in accordance difectorio its specific nature and authority, are mutually complementary.
And he said to them, ‘to you has been given the secret of the kingdom of God'”. Other seed fell on rocky ground, where it had not much soil, and immediately it sprang up, since it had no depth of soil; and when the sun rose it was scorched, and since it had no root it withered away. Finally, brethren, pray for us, that the word of the Lord may speed on, and triumph as it catequezis among you 2 Thess 3: Finally, being initiatory, it incorporates into the community, which lives, celebrates and bears witness to the faith.
Catechesis, for example, together with its initiatory forms, has frequently to discharge tasks of mission. Such ideologies and conduct have led to divisions which damage that witness of communion indispensable to evangelization. It is at once testimony and proclamation, word and sacrament, teaching and task. Jesus, in the parable of the sower, proclaims the Good News cagequesis the Paea of God is near, notwithstanding the problems in the soil, the tensions, conflicts and difficulties of the world.
Episcopal Conferences and several experts were consulted as were the principal catechetical institutes and centres. It is important that catechesis should unite well the confession of christological faith, “Jesus is Lord”, with the trinitarian confession, “I believe in the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit”, in such a way that there are gsneral two modes of expressing the Christian diirectorio.
It also means that catechesis will be as rich and as effective only to the extent that these texts are read with the mind and heart of the Church”. These are intended to assist mission. Grace, the fruit of the sacraments, is the irreplaceable condition for Christian living, just as participation in the Church’s Liturgy requires faith.
God, in fact, operates in such a manner that man comes to knowledge of his salvific plan by means of the events of salvation history and the inspired genrral which accompany and direcyorio them.

The ministry of the word is a fundamental element of evangelization. Faith involves a change of life, a “metanoia”, that is a profound transformation of mind and heart; it causes the believer to live that conversion.
It also presents some observations which may help sirectorio assimilation and interiorization of the Catechism and locate it within the catechetical activity of the Church. The Directory is addressed principally to the Bishops, Episcopal Conferences and, in a general way, in accordance with their competence, to those who have responsibility for catechesis.

Atheism, understood as a negation of God, “must therefore be regarded as one of the most serious problems of our time”. If faith is not expressed in works it is dead and cannot bear fruit into eternal life”. The Good News of the Kingdom of God, which proclaims salvation, includes a “message of liberation”. This option appears to be a priority in the pastoral planning of many dioceses, and also plays a central role in many ecclesial groups and movements. The Catechism of the Catholic Church indicates those aspects which must be taken into account when adapting or contextualizing the organic synthesis of the faith which every local catechism must offer.
In his words, signs and works during his brief but intense life, the disciples had direct experience of the fundamental traits of the “pedagogy of Jesus”, and recorded them in the Gospels: They note that painful experience to which the Gospel is so particularly sensitive: Firstly, it is necessary to see how the Second Vatican Council has been accepted in the Church, and how it has borne fruit.
The ministry of the word must always give prominence to this wonderful characteristic, proper to the economy of Revelation: However it is a particularly authentic act of interpretation of that word, such that the Gospel may be proclaimed and transmitted in all its truth and purity. Catechesis, “distinct from the primary proclamation of the Gospel”, promotes and matures initial conversion, educates the convert in the faith and incorporates him into the Christian community.
It is to be hoped that it will promote future study and deepen research so as to respond to the needs of catechesis and the norms and directives of the Church’s Magisterium.
The Congregation for the Clergy, in execution of this conciliar mandate, availed itself of a special commission of experts, and consulted the various Episcopal Conferences, throughout the world, which made numerous suggestions and observations on the subject. Re-awakening these to the faith is a real challenge for the Church. The trinitarian christocentricity of the Gospel message leads catechesis to attend amongst others, to the following points.
It must be regarded as an “eminent kind of catechesis”.
The Church continues to sow the Gospel in God’s field. It will, then, analyse the need for local catechisms to adapt the content of the faith to different circumstances and cultures.
