BEST PRACTICES OF FAITH FORMATION
A Modest Project Proposal.

Rather than forming their consciences around the infallible teachings of Catholicism in order to be salt and light to the culture, too many Christians in general and Catholics in particular have wallowed in the spice and shadows of self-indulgence that has led society in general into the shallows of immorality, greed, and pride. Without spiritual revival, conversion of hearts, and an incessant renewal, the destruction of life will continue and the destruction of America is inevitable. The problem and the solution has been well documented by Catholic Bishops...(READ MORE)



THE LOGIC OF REVIVAL AND FAITH FORMATION

In the shadow of the 2008 Presidential campaign and election of Barack Obama, and reports that 60% of Catholics voted for this most pro-death candidate ever, thus cooperating with the intrinsic evil of abortion -- this essay argues for three things: (1) Prayer and fasting for a holiness revival in the Catholic Church; (2) Commitment of the faithful to conforming their lives to holiness; and (3) the incessant, unending implementation of a project we might call BEST PRACTICES OF FAITH FORMATION, which is described in a proposal linked elsewhere on this page.



THE BIBLE CATHOLIC
Imbuing the Word of God into Catholic Practice

This document hopes to encourage the Synod of Bishops meeting in October 2008 on The Word of God to adopt a range of methodologies to draw Catholics closer to God through his written Word.



HOW TO GET CATHOLICS TO READ THE BIBLE

A blog entry on a first step, of a larger comprehensive plan, to make the Bible a personal and necessary part of the lay Catholic's life. I've received a lot fo criticism on this, but I know I'm right. It is silly that the proclamation of the word, during Mass, MUST BE ONLY heard and not read. And it is satanic for Catholics to suggest that the noise of people turning pages in their Bible during Mass would be a distraction. Evangelicals do a much better job of forming their adherants in their faith than Catholics do. And such fundamental techniques as this blog entry suggests is one of the reasons. Who will take the lead on this?

SPECIFIC IDEAS FOR FAITH FORMATION CLASSES
My answer to a reader's question: "Dear Stan. I am a Catechist for 17 ninth graders. What would you suggest for me, the Catechist, that will grab their attention, and get them involved. Right now, they're staring back at me as if the lights are on but nobody is home. I need something that will give them a piece of our Faith in order to build a good Catholic Foundation for their Confirmation next year."



WORLD BIBLE QUIZ ASSOCIATION

Bible Quizzing is the hands down BEST PRACTICE for youth to know the Bible. It's fun, it's international, it's almost addictive, and it builds strong Christian youth relationships...with other Christian youth, and with God. I do not know of a Catholic Bible Quiz league, which is probably the reason Catholics don't know their Bible's very well --- as compared to Evangelicals. This link is probably the main clearing house for Bible Quizzing. Plenty of Links.

BIBLE QUIZZING NET
Check out this page, and the many, many resources. SOMEONE PLEASE START A CATHOLIC BIBLE QUIZ LEAGUE.

BIBLE QUIZ RULE BOOKS
Search on the Internet for more examples, but here are two: From the Christian Missionary Alliance "Church." and another from National Youth Ministries. Someone should adapt this for Catholics.

NATIONAL CONFERENCE OF CATECHETICAL LEADERSHIP

While most of everyting on this page references Protstant-Evangelical Methods, The National Conference For Catechetical Leadership grew out of the early Confraternity of Christian Doctrine (CCD) movement in this country, with roots going back to 1934. Today, it is the only independent national organization exclusively dedicated to serving the church's catechetical mission in the United States. More than 90% of all dioceses/eparchies are members of NCCL, along with nine diocesan/provincial associations of parish catechetical leaders and Catholic publishing houses.
