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”. However, “by design this Catechism does not set out to provide the adaptation of doctrinal presentations and the catechetical methods required by the differences of culture, age, spiritual maturity and social and ecclesial condition amongst all those to whom it is addressed.

It remains easy to fall into a ‘content-method’ dualism, with catequsis reductionism to one or other extreme; with regard to the pedagogical dimension the requisite theological discernment has not always been exercised; The profession of faith, the liturgy, the morality of the Gospel and prayer in the Catechism of the Catholic Church all have a trinitarian inspiration, which runs through the entire work.

The profession of baptismal faith is but the foundation of a spiritual building which is destined to grow. From the depositum catequeiss entrusted to the Church, local Churches select, structure and express, under the guidance of the Holy Spirit, their inner Master, all those elements which transmit the Gospel in its complete authenticity in a given situation.

In any case, the catechism, being an instrument of catechetical activity, which is an act of communication, always reflects a certain pedagogical inspiration and must always make apparent, in its own way, the divine pedagogy.

The principle to be followed in this delicate task is indicated by the Second Vatican Council: Indeed, other more immediate aids are necessary. In the school of the word of God, received in the Church, the disciple, thanks to the gift of the Holy Spirit sent by Christ, grows like his Teacher “in wisdom, stature, and in favour with God and men” Lk 2, It is this harmonious vision of the Gospel which converts it into a profoundly meaningful event for the human person.

Those who have converted to Jesus Christ and who have been educated in the faith by means of catechesis, by receiving the sacraments of Christian initiation Baptism, Confirmation and Eucharist “are delivered from the powers of darkness through the sacraments of Christian initiation and having died, been buried, and risen with Christ, they receive the Spirit of adoption as children and celebrate with the whole people of God the memorial of the Lord’s death and resurrection”.


The Catechism of the Catholic Church thus refers to the faith as believed, celebrated, lived and prayed.

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. Faith is a gift from God.

Also in these situations adults are also in need of different types of Christian formation. Both aspects, by their very nature, cannot be separated.

It proposes to help those who have just converted “to know better this Jesus to whom he has entrusted himself: The confession of faith is complete only in reference to the Church.

He presented himself to them as the only teacher and, at the same time, a patient and faithful friend. The fact that catechesis, at least initially, assumes a missionary objective, does not dispense a particular Church from promoting an institutionalized programme of primary proclamation to execute more directly Jesus’s missionary command. Thus, firstly, the relationship of catechesis with the primary proclamation, which is realized in mission, is described.

Obviously one does not refer hereby to contingent situations, which are addressed by other magisterial documents, but to the more permanent situation which demands a more specific and appropriate evangelization. Availing herself of the human sciences, 65 which are always necessary, the Church seeks to discover the meaning of the present situation within the perspective of the history of salvation. To God who reveals directirio is due this obedience of faith by which man cateqhesis to the “Gospel of the grace of God”.

AAS 53 pp. Without any sacrifice of the essential truths they must transpose this message into an idiom which will be understood by the people they serve and those who proclaim it”; The presence of Christianity amongst different human groups and its living witness must be explained and justified by the explicit proclamation of Jesus Christ the Lord.

These four dimensions spring from a single source, the Christian mystery.

As has been already noted in the Directory, what may appear insufficient in areas where catechesis and catechetical resources have reached a high standard, may perhaps seem excessive in areas where catechesis has not yet undergone such development.
