According to Pope Francis, "A catechist is a Christian who puts this remembrance at the service of proclamation, not to seem important, not to talk about himself or herself, but to talk about God, about his love and his fidelity. To talk about and to pass down all that God has revealed, his teaching in its totality, neither trimming it down nor adding on to it."
These expressive words of Pope Francis revitalizes in shepherding the flock for which our Lord has called us.
