Communicating Through Human Experience

The National Directory for Catechesis:

Jesus consistently used the ordinary human experiences of daily life to form his disciples, to point to the end of time, and to show the transcendent dimension of all of life and of God's eternal presence in it. Because the eternal Word assumed human nature, human experience is the locus for the manifestation and realization of salvation in him. By the grace of the Holy Spirit, persons come to know Christ, to know that he was sent from the Father, and to know that he died to save them in the midst of their human experience.
