Before we move on to consider historical models for catechesis, we have to confront the major difficulty with the entire process. That is this: We are attempting to say the unsayable, think the unthinkable, and express the inexpressible. We are trying to wrap words around the experience of God in order to communicate it to others. At the heart of catechesis is our search not to gain knowledge (gnosis) but rather to enter into the mind of the church (phronema). Fr. Gabriel contemplates these issues in this second installment of Flame in the Mind.
