    Now revised and updated with reflections by Rebekah Rojcewicz, this foundational text outlines the trusted methods used for training those in the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd program. Exploring the development of the program since its 1959 origins, this edition reflects changes in the materials made by Catechesis of the Good Shepherd founder, Sofia Cavalletti. Rebekah Rojcewicz’s new introduction provides a concise overview of these revisions, while recounting the origins of the program’s desire to nurture the child’s potential for a relationship with God.

    “Knowing how well the Good Shepherd and the Child has served these last 20 years, I am overjoyed with this new revision of the book! We have learned many things about the child in relationship with God over these past years, and have modified our approach.”
    -Mary Mirrione
    National Director of Catechesis of the Good Shepherd

  • The History of the Kingdom of God, Part 2: Liturgy and the Building of the Kingdom
    $17.00

    The History of the Kingdom of God, Part 2: Liturgy and the Building of the Kingdom is Sofia Cavalletti’s revision of her earlier book Living Liturgy. Together with Part 1, “From Creation to Parousia,” these books offer the reader insight into Scripture and Liturgy as the means to understand God’s plan of salvation history, from the creation of the world, through redemption by the life, death, and Resurrection of Jesus, to its culmination in the Parousia, when God will be all in all.

    Sofia Cavalletti’s primary concern in this book is to assist adults who are working with the religious formation of children to enter more deeply into the essential aspects of the liturgy. As Rebekah Rojcevicz writes in the introduction, “The second volume, subtitled ‘Liturgy and the Building of the Kingdom of God,’ considers specifically the present phase of history, in which God’s plan is always in action, that is, it is continuing to unfold, and every man, every woman, and every child is invited to participate and collaborate in this history.” Her understanding of liturgy as transformative prayer brings about God’s kingdom on earth as it is in heaven makes this work of interest to all who love the liturgy and for whom liturgy is central to their Christian life.

    Parenting is a challenging call. Many resources for parents focus on the child, but Parenting: A Sacred Path is for parents to reflect on their experience, with all of its joys and struggles, as an invitation to grow in faith, love, trust and compassion. Each of six chapters provides an opening reflection for personal or group use, followed by a week of quotes for reflection and prayer. The gift of this simple book is in the self-understanding, acceptance and growth as parents nurtured week by week. It’s perfect as a gift to parents, or as a tool to lead reflection groups.

    Here’s a note we received from one grateful reader:

    “I wanted you to know that not only did I enjoy spending the six weeks of Lent with you on the sacred path of parenting, but also that that time has brought fresh air and energy and joy to my relationship with my 14-year-old son. Three weeks into [your booklet], my son and I had a breakthrough. I’ll spare you the details—what he wanted, what I didn’t—except to say that in the end we actually listened to each other and negotiated a compromise that helped us both see the other’s point of view. Each of us was pleased we could—and did!—do something other than insist on our own way. So, we are celebrating new fruit that will multiply 100 fold, I’m sure.”

    As adults sharing CGS with children, we have often realized how rich it’s content is for the adult’s relationship with God. This book is an attempt to nurture the adult’s hunger and thirst for “good news of great joy” (Luke 2:10) that the children experience through CGS.

    The meditations explore and illuminate the Christian message that we have been led to through our work with children, including the birth and infancy of Jesus, the parable of the Good Shepherd, the roots of the Eucharist and the Easter Mystery, and the parable of the True Vine. They are the fruit of Sofia Cavalletti’s meditions with adults gathered together as listeners of the word. Because the book arose from actual encounters, the writers invite you to enter into it as fellow listener, meditating on scripture and liturgy alongside them.
