The World Meeting of Families Catechism

Preparatory Catechesis
At each World Meeting of Families (WMOF), the host diocese writes a preparatory catechesis. This is a fundamental part of the meeting, and it elaborates on this year’s theme: “Love Is Our Mission: The Family Fully Alive.” Ten themes about love, joy, and the nature of the family embody the preparatory catechesis, which is available as a book and as lessons for children of all ages.

The ten themes of the preparatory catechesis are:

  1. Created for Joy – God loves us and wants us to share in His joy.
  2. The Mission of Love – God has a purpose for us, and He calls us to be witnesses.
  3. The Meaning of Human Sexuality – Our bodies have sacramental meaning.
  4. Two Become One – Man and woman are called to love one another according to God’s covenant.
  5. Creating the Future – A family is a domestic church in which parents show their children that God has a plan for them.
  6. All Love Bears Fruit – In every vocation, you are called to give your life to God.
  7. Light in a Dark World – The Church resists the temptations of the world in order to protect the family.
  8. A Home for the Wounded Heart – Christian families are sources of support for those struggling with painful life situations.
  9. Mother, Teacher, Family: The Nature and Role of the Church– Even when her members sin, we still need the spiritual nourishment of the Church.
  10. Choosing Life – Catholic families need courage to accomplish the mission God calls them to embrace.
