Nigerian Cardinal Francis Arinze spoke to a group of catechists in Sri Lanka, reminding them of the importance of their role in teaching the faith and encouraging them to read the catechism.
"The Catechism of the Catholic Church is an important book...reading it would improve your knowledge," he told the group on July 22.
The cardinal delivered an address at Loyola College in Negombo, Sri Lanka, in celebration of the Negombo Regional Catechists Day.
Alongside reading the catechism, he stated that there is a need to live "an exemplary life" and "a life of prayer."
