Catch as Catechumen!
Attention, all missionizers:
It's time we pick a new word. They're not "investigators." The scriptures (Gal. 6:6) say they're catechumens. (Pronounced "ka-t&-'kyü-m&n) Really! You could look it up! Wanna see it in the original Greek?
A Catholic Encyclopedia article on the subject says: "'Catechumen,' in the early Church, was the name applied to one who had not yet been initiated into the sacred mysteries, but was undergoing a course of preparation for that purpose..."
Now you know! My Gospel Essentials class, beware!
