Let the children come to me,

and do not hinder them;

 for to such belongs
the kingdom of heaven

(Mt 19:14)


The goal of all catechesis is to lead people to an intimate relationship
– an encounter – with Jesus Christ.

Only he can lead us to the love of the Father in the Spirit
and make us share in the life of the Holy Trinity
. (Catechesi Tradendae)
