This page on Christian initiation is offered in each issue of The Sower as an on-going way to address specific questions that do not necessarily get addressed in more general articles and training resources. The questions all come straight from the field, and have two sources: 1) from readers like you; 2) from issues raised during seminars conducted by the Association for Catechumenal Ministry (ACM) over the past ten years in various dioceses.
In this issue we address the following questions:
Q. An RCIA inquirer has recently come to our parish and she is seeking to have the Church address the situation of a previous marriage to a man who is a Jew. He was never baptized and neither is she. How does this situation differ from a marriage between two baptized people? Would a Pauline or Petrine privilege be relevant here?
Q. I’m having trouble finding really solid catechetical material for adults in the Spanish language. What is available for someone developing an RCIA process for a Hispanic community?
