    We found this session *incredibly* hard work. I did modify it a little because we have only 12 candidates so often the demonstrations/get a few people to do this end up having no audience or leaving 1 or 2 people out, so I divided the quotes up amongst them. The reason it was such hard work was not down to the session in itself but to the group: we have a very low baseline, my candidates do not know how to look up books in the Bible, are unsure which Testament contains even the Gospels (one of them doesn’t own a Bible and says they don’t have one at home either), they could not identify the relationship between OT prophecies and the life of Jesus due to not knowing that eg. Jesus was born in Bethlehem, more than half could not remember ever having heard the story of the Jonah and the whale. Also it was the end of term and they are all tired. The fact that Jesus is the promised Messiah was just about grasped by the end, but I wouldn’t count on them knowing that Jesus is both fully God and fully man! Oh well, lots for me to learn moving on from here.

    Unfortunately there seem to be quite a few errors in the BIble references in this chapter of the book which confused things more. I strongly recommend double checking all the references before this session.

    Wow – Alex – thanks for the feedback. It sounds like it was tough-going! I am aware that the catechesis is hard work for those candidates without a Catholic family background or a relationship with Christ. Remember, you can cut out or adapt parts that seem too advanced. Knowing your candidates well and proclaiming the Gospel message to them in any way that reaches them are far more important than overloading them with knowledge. With prayers for your work!

    Thanks for your prayers Hannah. I am really trying not to overload them with knowledge (this is absolutely my weakness) and to remember God is the protaganist in all this, and after a break for the holidays I am feeling a bit more refreshed. Now that we have established that we think there is a God, this week we are going to try praying.
