Abstract :
In this essay, I will present an overview of the General Directory for Catechesis which has two constituent elements: the contextualization of catechesis in evangelization and the appropriation of the content of the faith as presented in the Catechism of the Catholic Church (GDC, no. 7). Out of this seemingly disparate context I will examine the meaning and implications of 'the baptismal catechumenate as the model of all catechesis.'
