Quote of the Day

In the early Church, catechesis led to baptism: it was the prerequisite for the sacrament of initiation into the body of believers. Belief was an adult phenomenon, a conscious choice, made after a process of education. Over time, as Christianity became the majority religion, the practice of infant baptism emerged; as that practice became normal, the relationship between Christianity and knowledge of any kind changed, and with it, catechesis.  – LPW
