"The word catechesis comes from the Greek meaning "to echo the teaching" meaning that catechesis or the teaching of the faith is an interactive process in which the Word of God re-sounds between and among the proclaimer, the one receiving the message, and the Holy Spirit!" (What is Catechesis, Catholic New Agency)
"The name of catechesis was given to the whole of the efforts within the Church to make disciples, to help people to believe that Jesus is the Son of God, so that believing they might have life in His name,and to educate and instruct them in this life and thus build up the Body of Christ." (Catechesi Tradendae, 1)
