Adult Catholics need more than a catechesis designed for children. Along with the ordained, we have also been consecrated for a mission. We are called not only to receive Christ in the sacraments, but to bring Christ to the world. Adults need an integrating catechesis that prepares them to live as apostles, gifted men and women of faith, who are called by God to shape the world they live in through their love and work.

If formation for mission is essential to true catechesis, then the overwhelming majority of lay Catholics are not being truly catechized.
