The Catechetical Review - Communicating Christ for a New Evangelization

Learning through Art: Fresco of the Virgin and Child from the Catacombs of Priscilla

Authored by Dr. Caroline Farey in Issue #34.1 of The Sower
For the Year of Faith, ‘Learning through Art’ is focusing on the artworks used in the Catechism of the Catholic Church and how to catechise, beginning from the art work, when we use or teach from a particular section of the Catechism. The first image discussed in The Sower was the logo on the front cover which we saw can help us to catechise on the purpose and structure of the Catechism and appreciate how the Catechism was written to support us in our journey to Heaven. In the last issue, we looked at the artwork used for Part Four of the Catechism on Christian Prayer. In this present issue we look at the image that illustrates Part One, The Profession of Faith.
