perils of catechesis

By Diogenes ( articles ) | Aug 08, 2005

The Irish archbishop is understandably concerned:

Teachers will tell you that young children arrive in schools and don't know how to make the Sign of the Cross.

That's bad; very bad. Thank goodness they're coming to Catholic schools, where they can be taught such things.

But wait.

What worries me is that they sometimes leave school after an intensive catechetical programme and they don't have the type of formation which would allow them to live out the faith in a changing world.


What I want to know is: after that "intensive catechetical programme," do they know how to make the Sign of the Cross?
