Our Sunday Visitor is coming out with a book in August called Be an Amazing Catechist: Inspire the Faith of Children by Lisa Mladinich.  I had the honor of receiving it early from Lisa.  I am very much looking forward to reading it.  I love the title of her introducation: “A Quiet Revolution”… a catechist has the potential to lead “a quiet revolution” in their ministry.  When catechists passionately teach the faith and hand it on to their students in all its fullness they make a real difference in the lives of their students.  When catechists share their love for Christ and His Church wholeheartedly it cateches fire and bears much fruit.  Lisa calls the most important part of this revolution for catechists is “to deepen your relationship with Jesus Christ in His Church.  Through prayer and [the] sacramental life, you will find strength and encouragement – you will receive the graces needed to be an amazing catechist”.

I strongly recommend this book for DRE’s and catechists.
