In a message sent to catechists from all over the world, Pope Francis stressed the need to not only make Christ the center of their lives, but to be creative and adaptable in finding ways to reach the people in their area.
"The catechist is creative; they search for different means and forms of announcing Christ," the Pope said in his July 12 message.
Believing in Jesus is "beautiful," he said, because Jesus is the way, truth and life "who fills our existence with joy and gladness."
"This quest to make Jesus known as supreme beauty leads us to find new signs and ways of transmitting the faith," he said, noting that while the means might be different, what's important is to imitate "the style of Jesus, who adapted to the people he had before him in order to make them close to the love of God."
