As Pope St. John Paul II made clear in his apostolic exhortation Catechesi Tradendae, “The definitive aim of catechesis is to put people not only in touch but in communion, in intimacy, with Jesus Christ.”
The Formed in Christ series seeks to fulfill this call, fostering intimacy with Christ through its dynamic content. Each of the texts is complimented by a comprehensive workbook designed to provide instructors with test material and direction for enhancing students’ grasp of the material.
God, who knows each of us intimately, calls us to holiness through our vocation. In I Have Called You: An Introduction to Vocations, we learn about the universal call to holiness and how it can be lived out through both our particular vocation and our state in life. Through plain language and primary sources from the Church’s magisterium, readers will learn Church teaching on marriage, holy orders, and the consecrated life. God asks us to live in communion and community with others—and our holiness is intimately tied to how we answer this call.
