YMB #44 Catechism and Memory: A Conversation with Geoffrey Reiter


What is a catechism and why is it important to teach to our children? In this episode of the podcast Dr. Geoffrey Reiter joins me to talk about how catechism and memory shape us along with some practical tips for implementing catechism memorization into our Morning Time.
It’s a fascinating conversation full of practical advice (including which catechisms to use) and things to ponder.

    Thank you for this podcast. A program we have enjoyed for memory work (k-8), including Catechism, is Classically Catholic Memory.

    Our family came into the Catholic Church this Easter! I was hoping this podcast would have give me ideas on how to implement the catechism into our day more effortlessly. But it seems like there was a gymnastics battle of not wanting to offend Protestant “faiths” vs being on fire for your faith, Our Church, the One True Faith. Was a little uncomfortable listening to the PC Dance.
