La catequesis para las personas con discapacidad

Authored by Sr. M. Johanna Paruch in Issue #1.4 of The Catechetical Review

Vayan, pues, y enseñen a todas las naciones: el mandato evangélico de catequizar a todas las personas

Como lo dice San Pablo, nuestra actitud tiene que ser la de Cristo. La Segunda persona de la Santísima Trinidad se hizo hombre para salvarnos de nuestros pecados. "Se despojó de sí mismo, tomando condición de servidor," y murió en una cruz (Filipenses 2: 7-8, Biblia de Jerusalén. Ed. Desclée de Brouwer, 2009). Durante su breve estancia en la Tierra, Jesús sanó a los leprosos, y también a los ciegos, los sordos, cojos y paralíticos. En los Evangelios, encontramos historias específicas de milagros, y podemos decir con seguridad que Jesús sanó a muchas otras personas cuyas historias nunca se hicieron públicas. Sin embargó, no curó a todos. Nos enseñó que ni los pecados de las mismas personas con discapacidad, ni los pecados de sus padres son la causa de sus discapacidades (cf. Juan 9: 1-41). Y con más importancia aún, nos enseñó a amarnos los unos a los otros. La catequesis siempre debe de ser un acto amoroso: no estamos enseñando simplemente sobre Jesús, sino que estamos conduciendo a nuestros estudiantes hacia una relación con Jesucristo, quien nos ama a todos.

Considered abstractly, we cannot wrap our minds around it. We need to somehow see it, if we are to understand the aim above every other in the Christian life... Read more
What Is Holiness?
By John C. Cavadini
Surely one of the most beautiful, one of the most enduring, and one of the most sublime teachings of Vatican II is the universal call to holiness in Lumen Gentium, chapter 5. I have never reread this chapter without feeling an increase of my own zeal for answering this call, even as I become more aware, at the same time, of how much I fall short.... Read more
The Way and Witness of a Holy Marriage
By Deacon James Keating
Free The matrimony of two of the baptized…is in real, essential and intrinsic relationship with the mystery of the union of Christ with the church…it participates in its nature…marriage is deeply seated and rooted therefore in the Eucharistic mystery.[1] This spiritual vision of marriage, as articulated by Cardinal Caffara, may appear as novel or even...
