Catechesi Tradendae - Catechesis in our Time: "The Church has always considered catechesis one of her primary tasks, for, before Christ ascended to His Father after His resurrection, He gave the apostles a final command - to make disciples of all nations and to teach them to observe all that He had commanded."
National Directory for Catechesis:
"Evangelization and catechesis are among the principal means by which the Church hands on the faith," (pg. 41).
General Directory for Catechesis:
"The definitive aim of catechesis is to put people not only in touch, but also in communion and intimacy, with Jesus Christ." #80

Evangelii Nuntiandi - Evangelization in the Modern World: "In what way is this mystery to be proclaimed? How can one ensure that it will resound and reach all those who should hear it? This proclamation - kerygma, preaching or catechesis - occupies such an important place in evangelization that it has often become synonymous with it; and yet it is only one aspect of evangelization." #47
Christus Vivit - To Young People & the Entire People of God: "Christ is alive!
He is our hope, and in a wonderful way, he brings youth to our world, and everything
he touches becomes young, new, full of life." #1
