14 The Message -- for Catholics of Southwestern Indiana _Questions and answers about new Catech An English edition of The Catechism of the Catholic Church is expected to be pub- lished and available early next year. Following are questions and answers about the Cate- chism, from a committee of the United states Catholic Confer- ence. How can the Catechism be most effectively used by priests? Since the Catechism pre- sents the content of the faith in a complete and organic sum- mary, it is an invaluable pas- toral resource for priests. It of- fers the Church's teachings in a positive, expository manner avoiding argumentation or apologetic. As such it easily lends itself to use in teaching, counseling and preaching. For example, when the faithful seek responses to questions concerning doctrinal matters, the Catechism is a user- friendly resource with its cross-referencing system and many indices. In addition, as doctrinal issues are suggested in the liturgical cycle of read- ings, the Catechism can pro- vide fertile background for the priest to address these issues directly in his homilies. Since seminarians can also benefit from the use of the Catechism. they, too. should be encouraged to read and study it.

In fact it is Christ who they teach. In light of this, catechists are teachers of the truths of the faith. The Catechism provides them a handy reference work which could be used together with their catechist manuals for use in the preparation of lesson plans. Catechists will find the Catechism to be a reli- able and credible companion in their catechetical ministry. How can the Catechism be effectively used by all others responsible for cate- chests? While this part of the Cate- chism's intended audience is indefinite, it would seem that diocesan and parish educa- tional and catechetical leaders would be included. The Cate- chism provides a treasury of personal and professional re- sources for all those responsi- ble for catechesis, especially those in leadership positions. Diocesan and parish educa- tional and catechetical leaders, under the direction of the local bishop, could assist in the eval- uation of catechetical materi- als based on the Catechism. How can the Catechism be most effectively used by "all the faithful"?
