Importanţa catehezei în actualitate. Activităţi catehetice desfășurate în Biserica Ortodoxă Română și Biserica Ortodoxă din Grecia (studiu comparativ)
The study aims at describing the catechesis activities, as well as their importance and essential requirement in order to ensure a harmonious growth of the young generation and not only. Changes that occur in society, the human being’s dependence on everything that is material, consumerism, selfishness and personal self-concern make us approach the issue of catechesis from another point of view. Taking into account the fact that the catechetical programs carried out within the Romanian Orthodox Church are extremely well known, they have been schematically presented. At the same time, the study presents and describes the catechetical activities carried out by the Greek Orthodox Church, as well as their importance and impact on the individual, on family and on the community. The uppermost goal of the study consists in the exchange of the catechetical experience between the two Churches, to their mutual benefits. It is shown that in the contemporary context, catechesis is more necessary than ever. It is by no means outdated or obsolete. The importance of a thorough education, which presents young people with genuine and worthy role models to follow, is fundamental in the process of educating them, but also in building a beautiful future for our society. In the study, there are references to Internet addresses related to these catechesis activities, as well as to new catechetical methods, proposals and points of view.
