  • Songs of Love: Music of the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd for Children Six to Twelve Years
    $40.00

    A book and CD set of 38 songs with music, chords, lyrics and notes by Catherine Maresca regarding use of each song in the atrium. The CD is recorded by the Senior Children’s Choir of Christ Church Cathedral in Nashville, TN.

    Music has a very important place in the prayer of children and life in the CGS atrium. To encourage the use of good music and lyrics, Treehaus Communications, musicians in Nashville, and catechist/formation leader Catherine Maresca created Sing With Joy and Songs of Love, two books with a CD of age- and theme-appropriate music for the atrium.

    The books were created to provide legal access to the lyrics, music notation, notes and recordings of music for catechists, respecting the rights of the composers, writers, artists and publishers who created and brought this music to the public. This or any other music should not be reproduced without permission.

    The Mysteries of the Rosary provide a walk through the life of Christ from the Annunciation to Parousia. Divided into four groups (rosaries) of five reflections (decades), they are used as points of focus for the twenty mysteries of the rosary. Each reflection includes a Scripture text, an illustration with title, and a summary of how God’s power is at work in each event.

    For children, even without using a Rosary, this book provides twenty scenes from the life of Christ, with sentences to connnect it to our own lives. Praying the Rosary with this book gives children and adults a tactile, focused way to meditate on the life of Christ. It serves as a beautiful presentation of the life of Christ and a helpful guide to this rich prayer tradition.

    Way of Holy Joy, a compilation of writings by the co-founder of the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd, focuses on the spiritual life of the child. With the exception of one, these have not previously been published in English. As the title suggests, these essays shine a light on an often overlooked spiritual reality: the joy that is found in the relationship between God and the Child.

    The essays included in this volume, published shortly after her death in August 2011, also reflect her involvement with the wider church community, including her work on the relationship between the Catholic and Jewish faiths. Those interested in children’s spirituality will find these essays a source of inspiration and insight. Perhaps more importantly, all who seek to live out their baptismal calling as Christians will benefit from meditating on these reflections. One of the most important, though perhaps unintended, effects of Cavalletti’s work has been its impact on adults. By focusing on what is most essential, what is at the heart of faith—a relationship with a Person—many have discovered for themselves this “way of holy joy.”

    Christian children in the sensitive period for history and finding their place in the world are ready and eager to see a history of Christianity timeline. Many of these children have friends and family members connected to more than one denomination. How are these denominations connected? There are Christians throughout the world. When and how did Christianity spread from the Holy Land to all the continents? How are world history and the history of Christianity intertwined? Who are some of the great Saints and when did they live? How is our faith represented in art and architecture throughout history?

    These and other questions the children have asked begin to be explored on our new History of Christianity Timeline.
