Cómo utilizar el YOUCAT

Authored by Bob Rice in Issue #32.3 of The Sower

En el 2003, tuve el privilegio de asistir a una conferencia del Cardenal Schönborn, Arzobispo de Viena, quien tuvo un papel importante en la redacción y la edición del Catecismo de la Iglesia Católica. Lo recuerdo comentando que los que habían participado en la creación del CEC se sorprendieron por lo bien que se vendía, especialmente entre los fieles laicos católicos, ya que su redacción se destinaba principalmente a los obispos, los sacerdotes y los catequistas que trabajan con ellos.

En mis tiempos de encargado de grupos juveniles, trabajé incansablemente para poner el Catecismo de la Iglesia Católica en las manos de todos los jóvenes que yo pudiera. Lo convertí en un regalo de Confirmación, un regalo de graduación, o lo regalaba durante los retiros. No pretendía que un joven lo leyera del principio al fin, pero por lo menos que tuviera algo donde encontrar las respuestas acerca de su fe, especialmente, cuando se iban de casa a la Universidad.

Si estuviera hoy en la pastoral juvenil, yo le daría a cada joven su ejemplar del YOUCAT en lugar del CEC.

That They May Be One

The seventeenth chapter of John’s Gospel captures an intimate conversation between Jesus and God the Father. Jesus and his disciples will soon cross the Kidron Valley and enter into the Garden of Gethsemane. He will be arrested and enter into his Passion. “The hour has come” (Jn 17:1). Earlier in John’s Gospel, when Mary approaches Jesus at the... Read more
The Church Is Holy: Perspective and Hope from St. Augustine
By Fr. Pieter van Rooyen
Free At a time when we know all too well the sins of our leaders, the “mark” of holiness raises questions. But insights from Saint Augustine can give perspective and hope—because even while the Church is “always in need of purification” (CCC 827), she is united with Christ and she is “sanctified by him; [and] through him and with him she becomes...
