Vatican City, Jun 25, 2020 / 03:45 am
The Vatican Thursday published a new directory for catechesis, emphasizing both its continuity with two previous directories and its new content on contemporary issues such as sex and gender and medical advancements.
"The new Directory for Catechesis offers the fundamental theological-pastoral principles and some general orientations which are relevant for the practice of catechesis in our time," Archbishop Rino Fisichella wrote in the introduction to the directory.
The directory was released in Italian June 25. It will be published in the major global languages.
Fisichella is president of the Pontifical Council for the Promotion of the New Evangelization, which is responsible for the new edition of the directory, a 300-page book intended as a guide to bishops, priests, religious, and lay Catholics involved in teaching the Catholic faith.
