The New Catechetical Directory published in March last year, states what the Christian life is all about in a number of fundamental points.
‘The Christian proclamation communicates the divine plan, which is:
· a mystery of love: human beings, loved by God, are called to respond to him, becoming a sign of love for their brothers and sisters.
· The revelation of the intimate truth of God is Trinity and of humanity's vocation to a filial life in Christ, source of his dignity.
· The offer of salvation to all people through the paschal mystery of Jesus Christ, gift of God's grace and mercy, which implies liberation from evil from sin and from death
· The definitive call to reunite scattered humanity in the Church bringing about communion with God and fraternal union among people already in the here and now, but to be fulfilled completely at the end of time' (chapter 14).
