RCIA catechesis is performance art

3 thoughts on “RCIA catechesis is performance art”

  1. Nice post Nick! I completely agree. It really is an art to be engaging and informative at the same time. Kind of like performance art. And, scholarly learning is most definitely not the only component to effective catechesis. I love that book on Augustine by William Harmless too!

  2. “You don’t have a physical product to show once you have finished.”????
    Disciples on fire for Jesus Christ???
    Just a few remembered for their art; St Peter, St Paul, (all the apostles), St Ignatius, St Justin, St Chrysostom, St Augustine, St Jerome, St Francis, St Thomas, St Francis Xavier, Thomas a Kempis, St Thomas More, St Junipero Serra, North American martyrs, Fr De Smet, St Francis de Sales, St Alphonsus Liguori, Frederick Faber, John Henry Newman, St Therese of Lisieux, GK Chesterton, Marie Joseph Lagrange, St Maximilian Kolbe, Edith Stein, Edward Leen, Ronald Knox, Romano Guardini, Francois Mauriac, Jacques Maritain, Arnold Lunn, Fulton Sheen, Frank Sheed, and many many more.

  3. I agree that Art changes people BUT I am reminded that Michelangelo after carving his name on La Pieta` regretted it as he realised it was done in vanity. He acknowledged that his talents were a God given gift and only the Almighty should be glorified. I do not agree with Jobs that “Real artists sign their work” ! However, I do I agree with St Augustine, catechists sharing their time on a voluntary basis are the real artists!
