A step-by-step guide to mystagogy

  1. High time you got a comment!
    I’m just reading Pope Francis’ exhortation, which mentions mystagogical catechesis (para 163 ff.) which I’d never heard of (I’m an Anglican) and your step-by-step guide seems great to me.

    Thanks this will help me a lot…I am a cradle Catholic, I have heard about mystagogy, but never had to explain it. We just went through Confirmation and First Holy Communion with 72 children grades 2nd – 8th grade and we are going to have two more classes to discuss the process of continuing that important date and what it meant to each of those children to receive the Holy Spirit more fully and the precious Body, Blood and Divinity of Our Lord, Jesus Christ. I needed something to help refocus and your article has helped!

    1. Hi Rosalind. Is there some reason for not involving neophytes in liturgical ministries? I have heard of RCIA teams treating the period of mystagogy as a time of parish ministry recruitment. I would avoid turning the period into an extended ministry fair. But if a neophyte feels called to a liturgical ministry, I don’t see any reason to restrict them from participating.
