From the oral teaching by the apostles and the letters circulating among the churches down to the most modern means, catechesis has not ceased to look for the most suitable ways and means for its mission, with the active participation of the communities and at the urging of the pastors. Preaching, centered upon the Bible texts, must then in its own way make it possible to familiarize the faithful with the whole of the mysteries of the faith and with the norms of Christian living.

Thus it is no surprise that every stirring in the field of theology also has repercussions in that of catechesis. We must be grateful to the Lord for this contribution by the laity, but it is also a challenge to our responsibility as pastors, since these lay catechrsi must be carefully prepared for what is, if not a formally instituted ministry, at the very least a function of great importance in the Church.
Let us first of all recall that there is no separation or opposition between catechesis and evangelization. AAS 60p. It is desirable that initiatives meant to give all these groups a Christian tfadendae, with appropriate means audio-visual aids, booklets, discussions, lecturesshould increase in number, enabling many adults to fill catschesi gap left by an insufficient or deficient catechesis, to complete harmoniously at a higher level their childhood catechesis, or even to prepare themselves enough in this field to be able to help others in a more serious way.
