The definitive aim of catechesis
is to put people not only in touch
but in communion, in intimacy,
with Jesus Christ.
-Saint John Paul II
On Catechesis In Our Time
The home is the first school of Christian life and 'a school for human enrichment.' Here one learns endurance and the joy of work, fraternal love, generous — even repeated — forgiveness, and above all divine worship in prayer and the offering of one’s life.
-Catechism of the Catholic Church, #1657
