AAS 53 pp. Editio Typica, Typis Polyglottis Vaticanis AAS 83pp. The Second Vatican Council prescribed that a “Directory for the catechetical instruction of the Christian people” 1 be drawn up.
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. The text prepared was revised by an ad hoc theological Commission and catequseis the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith. The thirty-year period between the conclusion of the Second Vatican Council and the threshold of the third millennium is without doubt most providential for the orientation and promotion of catechesis.
It has been a time in which the evangelizing vigour of the original ecclesial community has in some ways re-emerged. It has also seen a renewal of catequessis in the teaching of the Fathers and has made possible a return to the catechumenate. Sincecateqjesis General Catechetical Directory has oriented the particular Churches in their renewal of catechesis and has acted caatequesis a point of reference for content and pedagogy, as well as for methodology.
The course of catechesis during this same period has been characterized everywhere by generous dedication, worthy initiatives and by positive results for the education and growth directrio the faith of children, young people and adults. At the same time, however, there have been crises, doctrinal inadequacies, influences from the evolution of global culture and ecclesial questions derived from outside the field of catechesis which have often impoverished its quality.
The Magisterium of the Church, throughout these generzl, has never ceased to exercise its pastoral solicitude for catechesis. Numerous Bishops and Episcopal Conferences in all parts of the world have devoted considerable attention to catechesis by means of catechisms and pastoral guidelines, by promoting the formation of their priests and by encouraging catechetical research.
Efforts such as these have proved fruitful and have contributed much to catechetical praxis in didectorio particular Churches. The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adultspublished by the Congregation for Divine Worship on 6 Januaryhas proved especially useful for catechetical renewal.
Mention must also be made in a particular way of the ministry of Pope Paul VI, who shepherded the Church in the immediate post-conciliar period.
The reflections of the General Assembly of the Synod of Bishops of October on the theme of Evangelization in the Contemporary World constitute a decisive milestone for catechesis. This document enunciates, amongst other things, a particularly geneal principle, namely, that of catechesis as a work of evangelization in the context of the mission of the Church.
Henceforth catechesis would be considered as one of the enduring concerns of the Church’s missionary mandate for our times.
The final General Assembly of the Synod of Bishops, convoked by Pope Paul VI in Octoberproposed catechesis to its participants as the theme for analysis and reflection. This Synod saw “in paar renewal a precious gift of the Holy Spirit to the contemporary Church”.
General Directory for Catechesis
This Exhortation forms a cohesive unity with Evangelii Nuntiandi and fully locates catechesis within the context of evangelization. Throughout his entire pontificate, Dirdctorio John Paul II has continually proposed a constant magisterium of the highest catechetical value.
From amongst his discourses, his letters, his written teaching, particular emphasis must be given to the twelve Encyclicals, from ,a Hominis to Ut Unum Sint. These Encyclicals constitute in themselves a synthetic corpus of coherent doctrine with regard to the renewal of ecclesial life desired by the Second Vatican Council.
Of particular catechetical value, amongst these documents of the Petrine ministry of Pope John Paul II, the following are of special importance: Redemptor Hominis 4 MarchDives in Misericordia 30 NovemberDominum et Vivificantem 18 May and Redemptoris Missio 7 Decemberin which last, the permanent validity of the Church’s missionary mandate is diretorio.
On the other hand the General Assemblies of the Synod of Bishops, both ordinary and extraordinary, have been particularly important for catechesis. In this respect mention dorectorio be made of the Synods of and which dealt with the mission of the family and the vocation of the laity. The Extraordinary Synod of Bishops of was also of decisive importance for the catechesis of our times and for the future.

On that occasion, following a review of the previous twenty years of the application of the Second Vatican Council the Synodal Fathers proposed to the Holy Father a universal catechism for the Catholic Church. After a long and complex process dirwctorio elaboration the Catechism of the Catholic Church was presented to the bishops and the Particular Churches by the Apostolic Constitution Fidei Depositum of the 11 October The publication of the Lq together with the aforementioned interventions of the Magisterium necessitated a revision of the General Catechetical Directory so as to adapt this parq theologico-pastoral instrument to new situations and needs.
It is in service of the entire Church that the Holy See now seeks to collate this heritage and to organize it systematically in order to make it available for 1979 purposes.
The work of revising the General Catechetical Directory undertaken by the Congregation for the Clergy, was conducted by a group of Bishops and experts in theology and generak. In the revision of the General Directory, its original inspiration and content were respected.
Episcopal Conferences and several experts were consulted as were the principal catechetical institutes and centres. In its present form the General Directory for Catechesis seeks to arrive at a balance between two principal requirements:. The General Directory for Catechesiswhile retaining the basic structure of that ofis divided as follows:. These are intended to assist mission.
The object of this Directory is clearly the same as that pursued by the Catequsis. It attempts to provide those fundamental theologico-pastoral principles drawn from the Church’s Magisterium, particularly those inspired by the Second Vatican Council, which are capable of better orienting and coordinating the pastoral activity of the ministry of the word and, concretely, catechesis.
This method has been adopted principally for the reason that defects and errors in catechetical material can be avoided only if the catrquesis and end of catechesis, as well as the truths and values which must be transmitted, are correctly understood from the outset. The concrete application of these principles and pronouncements by means of guidelines, national, regional or diocesan diectorio, catechisms and other ways deemed suitable for the effective promotion of catechesis is something which pertains to the specific competence of the various Episcopates.
It is evident that not all parts of the Directory have the same importance. Those dealing with Divine Revelation, the nature of catechesis, the criteria governing the proclamation of the Gospel message cateqeusis universally valid.

Those, however, referring to present circumstances, to methodology and to the manner of adapting catechesis to diverse age groups and cultural contexts are to be understood rather as indications or guidelines. 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. Clearly it will be of use in forming those preparing for ordination to the Priesthood, in the continuing formation of priests and in the formation of catechists.
The immediate end of the Directory is to assist in the composition of catechetical directories and catechisms. Numerous notes and references have been included in this Directory, at the suggestion of many Bishops, which may be useful in drawing up such catechetical aids.
Since the Directory is intended for the use of particular Churches, whose pastoral needs vary greatly, it is obvious that only common or intermediate concerns could be taken into account. This is true also of the sections dealing with the organization of catechesis at different levels. Due note should be made of this observation while using the Directory. 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.
It is hoped that the publication of this document, testimony of the Apostolic See’s solicitude for catechetical ministry, will be received and carefully studied in the context of the pastoral needs of each particular Church. 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. Finally, brethren, pray for us, that the word of the Lord may speed on, and triumph as it did among you 2 Thess 3: Preaching the Gospel in the contemporary world.
A sower went out to sow. As he sowed some seed fell along the path, and the birds came and devoured it. 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. Other seed fell among thorns which grew up and choked it, and it yielded no grain. And other seeds fell into good soil and brought forth grain, growing up and increasing, and yielding thirty fold, sixty fold, and a hundred fold ” Mk 4: The purpose of this Introduction is to foster in pastors and catechists a greater consciousness of the necessity to keep in mind the field in which the seed is sown, and to do so with the perspective of faith and mercy.
The interpretation of the contemporary world presented here is obviously dependant on contingent historical circumstances. The parable of the sower going out to sow is the source of inspiration for evangelization. The seed is the word of God Lk 8: The sower is Jesus Christ.
Two thousand years ago he proclaimed the Gospel in Palestine and sent the disciples to sow the Gospel in the world.

Today, Jesus Christ, present in the Church through his Spirit, continues to scatter the word of the Father ever more widely in the field of the world. The conditions of the soil into which it falls vary greatly. The Gospel “falls by the wayside” Lk 4,4 when it is directkrio really heard; it falls on directorlo soil” without taking root; it falls “amongst the thorns” Lk 4: Nonetheless, some seed falls “on good soil” Mk 4: This seed brings forth fruit in great abundance.
Jesus, in the parable of the sower, proclaims the Good News that the Kingdom of God is near, notwithstanding the problems in the soil, the tensions, conflicts and difficulties of the world. The Gospel seed makes fertile the history of mankind and promises a catequesls harvest. Jesus also cautions, however, that the word of God grows only in a well disposed heart. The Church continues to sow the Cateequesis in God’s field. Christians, in the most diverse social situations, perceive the world with the same eyes with which Jesus contemplated the society of his time.
The disciple of Jesus Christ deeply shares the “joys and hopes, the sadness and the anxieties of the men today”.
In the light of faith the world appears at once “created and sustained by the love of the Creator, which has been freed from the slavery of sin by Christ, who was crucified and rose”.
Hence the importance of a catechesis capable of initiating catechumens and those to be catechized into a “theological reading of modern problems”. The Church, Mother of mankind, above all, sees with profound sorrow “an innumerable multitude of men and women, children, adults and old people and unique human beings, who suffer misery”. By means of catechesis, in which due emphasis is given to her social teaching, the Church 17 desires to stir Christian hearts “to the cause of justice” 18 and to a “preferential option or love for the poor”, 19 so that her presence may really be light that shines and salt that cures.
The Church, in her analysis of the soil of the world, is acutely conscious of everything that injures the dignity of the human person.
