“God, who calls us to be a ‘we,’ strengthen my attentive relationships with my community of catechists. Help me lead my learners to be a community of holiness, of compassion, and of service.”
Even the most prayerful catechists can use some inspiration to support and strengthen their ministry and spiritual growth. This inspiring booklet is like a series of mini retreats to help catechists find new ways to integrate ministry with their prayer life. In each brief chapter, Janet Schaeffler places the words and wisdom of Pope Francis into context for catechists, to help them find new opportunities for prayer and reflection, and discover practical suggestions for their ministry and daily life. A wonderful gift for beginning or veteran catechists to help them integrate the two realities of prayer and action as they go about their work of building God’s kingdom.
