A three-day meeting at the Vatican has led to revisions in how catechesis is taught. They hope to create contagious enthusiasm that leads to more people having a personal relationship with God.
Today Pope Francis attended the meeting and invited the Church to reflect without fear on the state of faith education and to consider what main ideas should be transmitted.
"The gift of mercy is the announcement that the Church is called to transmit in her work of evangelization in this time of great change.”
It was the plenary meeting of the Pontifical Council for the New Evangelization. The Pope asked them to continue questioning without fear about what exactly is "the most coherent place to find Christ and follow Him.”
