Congress 1994

My Dear Friends in Christ:

May I take this opportunity to share with all of you who participate in this year's Religious
Education Congress my prayers and best wishes for a successful Congress.

The theme selected for Congress weekend, LIVE THE PROMISE, speaks of God's
covenanted love --a gift freely given to our human family. This promise of Covenant is
the foundation and source of our hope. God is our God, and we are a people called to
enter into this special relationship by heeding the words of Jesus: "This is the time of
fulfillment. The reign of God is at hand! Reform your lives and believe in the good
news!" (Mk 1:15)

To LIVE THE PROMISE calls us to ongoing conversion and response to God's saving
presence among us. Because of God's unconditional promise of love and faithfulness, we
can live with a spirit of trust even in the midst of the inevitable struggles and ambiguities
of daily life.

I am confident that Congress 1994 will be a wonderful opportunity for all of you to come
together and be enriched by the many workshops, Liturgical celebrations, and community
gatherings. It is in and through our community that we grow in the challenge of Christ's
words and actions.

Please be assured of my support and encouragement as you continue to pass on the good
news of God's promise of love and faithfulness, and as you encourage our young Catholic
generation to hear and follow the voice of Christ.

Asking the Lord's blessings upon you and all your efforts in religious education and
ministry, I am

..

Dear Friends,

Welcome to another grace-filled Religious Education Congress. We have a wonderful


theme to focus our gathering: "Live the Promise." The promise is God's faithfulness,
God's desire to walk among the human family and to keep on renewing the bonds of
love and pledge of new life. God's covenanted love gives us the assurance of a
presence that continues through time and space, and is experienced right in the heart
of our lives, our world today. It is the power that beckons us to walk lightly and
courageously in the face of life's struggles and ambiguities.

Congress 1994, again, offers many outstanding workshops, opportunities for


enrichment, community gatherings and a variety of liturgical experiences.

It is with great joy that I greet you, and hope that the weekend will be a time of
celebration, and spiritual renewal for all of you.

Sincerely,

BUILDING AMIDST THE RUINS: LIVING BY THE PROMISE


Rev. Richard Fragomeni
We are living within an age of social, cultural and religious disintegration. Amidst these
ruins, rests the promise ofthe Cross, proffering new life and hope in an age ofdespair. Living
by this promise, catechists, liturgists, educators, and religious leaders are called to be
heralds of a vision of compassion that the world cannot give. Christ Crucified is the vision
and promise. It is the resurrection-covenant to all creation. In the wounds of Christ; we
are urged on this passionate love to be built anew unto the glory of God.

Congreso de 1994.

Mis Queridos Amigos en Cristo:

Me permito dirigirme a ustedes en esta ocasi6n para comunicarles a todos los que estan
participando en el Congreso de Bducaci6n Religiosa de este aiio mis oraciones y mis
mejores deseos para que el Congreso sea todo un exito.

El tema seleccionado para el fin de semana del Congres_o, VIVIR LA PROMESA, trata
acerca del amor acordado por Dios -- un regalo dado libremente a nuestra familia
humana. Esta promesa de Alianza es la base y fuente de nuestra esperanza. Dios es
nuestro Criador, y nosotros estamos llamados a entrar en esta relaci6n especial
escuchando las palabras de Jesus: "Ha llegado el tiempo. IEl Reina de Dios esta cereal
IVuelvanse aDios, y acepten con fe la Buena Nueva!" (San Marcos 1:15)

El VIVIR LA PROMESA nos llama a entablar conversaci6n y dar respuesta ala


protectora asistencia de Dios entre nosotros. Ya que la promesa de amor de Dios es
incondicional y perseverante, podemos vivir con un espfritu de confianza aun en media de
luchas inevitables y ambigiiedades en nuestras vidas cotidianas.

Tengo la certeza de que el Congreso de 1994 sera una maravillosa oportunidad para todos
ustedes que se reunen para ser enriquecidos por los multiples talleres, las celebraciones
Liturgicas, y las reuniones comunitarias. Es en nuestra comunidad y por este media que
desarrollamos y estimulamos las palabras y acciones de Cristo.

Por favor esten seguros de mi apoyo y estfmulo al continuar trasmitiendo la Buena Nueva
de la promesa de amor y perseverancia de Dios, y al animar a la generaci6n de nuestros
j6venes Cat6licos a escuchar y seguir la voz de Cristo.

Pidiendo las bendiciones del Senor sabre ustedes y todos sus esfuerzos en la educaci6n
religiosa y ministerio en la Iglesia, quedo de ustedes

nceramente en Cristo,

Quiedos Amigos,

Bienvenidos a otro Congreso de Educaci6n Religiosa lleno de gracia. Tenemos un


tema maravilloso que sera el enfoque de nuestra reuni6n: "Vivir la Promesa ." La
promesa es la fidelidad de Dios, el deseo de Dios de caminar entre la familia humana
y de seguir renovando los lazos del amor y promesa de la nueva vida. El pacto de
amor de Dios, nos da la seguridad de una presencia que continua por el tiempo y
espacio, y la sentimos en el puro centro de nuestras vidas, en el mundo de hoy. Es
el poder el que nos llama a que sigamos caminando Iento y con valor en el momento
de lucha y ambigiiedad de nuestras vidas.

El Congreso 1994 nuevamente ofrece talleres sobresalientes, oportunidades de


enriquecimiento, reuniones de la comunidad y una variedad de experiencias
liturgicas.

Es con un gran placer que les doy la bienvenida, y espero que el fin de semana sea
para todos un tiempo de celebraci6n y renovaci6n espiritual.

Sinceramente,

Hna. Edith Prendergast, RSC

En el pueblo hispano, el catolicismo se hizo mestizo:
verdades indigenas prehispanicas se mezclaron con el
dogma cat6lico; y algunas verdades cat6licas se

laceniza, las imagenes, lacruz, Ia Virgen de Guadalupe,
