What does a catechumenal culture look like?

  1. For this pilgrim, it is hard hard to get your point when we don’t, and won’t have the document in front of
    us, for quite some time. I am reading: “Augustine and the Catechumenate,” by William Harmless, which I find, not only fascinating, but very insightful.. That said, I think that this “new” revision of the RCIA, is going to follow along these lines. I guess that what I am trying to say is this, and maybe this is what you suggesting as well: We need to be aware of where people are, but, instead of telling or, preaching to them, we need to ask the right questions, in order for the Spirit to continue the work he started. And, personally, I believe that this starts with us, and our prayerful relationship, submitting our will to the will of God. We, need to forget our agendas, leave our egos at the foot of the cross, and learn to follow the will of God, with the guidance of the Holy Spirit. And, it takes courage and persistence to succeed to work as a team and difficult decisions must be made…prayerfully, respectfully and compassionately.

    1. Hi Mike. William Harmless’s book is wonderful. I’m glad you are enjoying it. I love your statement: “We, need to forget our agendas, leave our egos at the foot of the cross, and learn to follow the will of God, with the guidance of the Holy Spirit.” I think that is exactly the point. Thanks for sharing.
