The following thoughts on Catechetical Sunday were written by Father Bob Hoefler and printed in his “From the Pastor” column in the Saint Francis of Assisi Catholic Church bulletin.
Itâ€™s Catechetical Sunday. Take a moment to offer a special prayer for those people who were catechists to you. Maybe it was parents; maybe it was grandparents or godparents; maybe it was a teacher in school or religious education. Or maybe it was a priest or a sister or deacon. Maybe it was just someone who cared enough about you to show you what it means to live as a follower of Jesus Christ.
All are living out the words spoken at their own baptism: â€œAs Christ was anointed Priest, Prophet, and King, so may you live always as a member of His body sharing everlasting life.â€
Catechists share of their faith in everlasting life.Â Thank you, and God bless you!
