CWN Editor's Note: Archbishop Rino Fisichella, president of the Pontifical Council for Promoting the New Evangelization, said that the new directory is distinguished by its “kerygmatic catechesis”: an announcement of Jesus Christ and the Father’s Mercy. A similar General Catechetical Directory was issued in 1971, and the General Directory for Catechesis was issued in 1997. Speaking on behalf of the US bishops’ conference, which is publishing the Directory, Bishop Robert Barron welcomed the new document.
