What is Resound?

The word “catechesis” literally means “to resound” – to echo the voice. True catechesis takes place when we listen to the voice of Christ resounding in His Church via Sacred Scripture and Sacred Tradition. The Catechism of the Catholic Church trains us to listen to Christ’s voice, allowing Him to encounter us, heal us, transform us, and send us into the world to be His witnesses.
 
Resound is a regular weekly gathering in which we move slowly through each paragraph of the Catechism, pausing for reflection, questions, and discussion.

In Jesus' life we see the drama of prayer brought to completion as, with thanksgiving, He submits His human will to the Father and offers up all of our troubles, petitions, and intercessions in a single cry on the cross; it is by virtue of being united to this cry that we are able to receive the ultimate answer to our prayers - God Himself.

Paragraphs
