Excerpt from Prologue of the Catechism of the Catholic Church:
    "FATHER, . . . this is eternal life, that they may know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent."

     "Those who with God's help have welcomed Christ's call and freely responded to it are urged on by love of Christ to proclaim the Good News everywhere in the world. This treasure, received from the apostles, has been faithfully guarded by their successors.
    All Christ's faithful are called to hand it on from generation to generation, by professing the faith, by living it in fraternal sharing, and by celebrating it in liturgy and prayer.

"Catechesis is an education in the faith of children, young people, and adults which includes especially the teaching of Christian doctrine imparted, generally  speaking, in an organic and systematic way, with a view to initiating the hearers into the fullness of Christian life."
