Becoming a Contemplative Catechist


“We want to see to Jesus” (Jn 12:21). This is the request put to the Apostle Philip in John’s Gospel. As catechists and evangelists, we want the people we encounter to encounter Christ in us. The goal of catechesis is to help people enter into communion with Jesus Christ. We need to show them who Jesus is through our teaching and witness. However, St. John Paul II beautifully reminds us, “Our witness would be hopelessly inadequate if we ourselves had not first contemplated his face.” (Novo Millennio 16). In this presentation, we will look at aspects of catechesis from the teacher’s perspective and the student’s perspective with regards to contemplation. For both new and veteran catechists, this presentation will help you remain focused on the ultimate goal of catechesis, understand a proper spirituality of the catechist, and the universal call to holiness.
