Adult Formation is the principal form of catechesis, because it is addressed to persons who have the greatest responsibilities and the capacity to live the Christian message in its fully developed form.(CT 90) The Christian community cannot carry out a permanent catechesis without the direct and skilled participation of adults, whether as receivers or as promoters of catechetical activity. For cathecisis to be effective, it must be permanant, and it would be quite usless if it stopped short of the threshhold of maturity.

THEOLOGY OF THE BODY CRASH COURSE
As our society becomes increasingly obsessed with the body, and, simultaneously, confused about what it actually signifies, the TOB sheds light on the mystery of the human person and of the human body. It also paves the way to a more profound understanding of the Church’s teaching on many controversial issues, such as contraception, IVF, cloning, gay marriage and divorce, among others.
