Episode 58 – Examination of Conscience with Claudia Margarita Schmitt


“God is love.”  1 John 4:8

Claudia Margarita Schmitt joins us on the podcast today to discuss the depth of the Examination of Conscience. She speaks about how moral formation should be a response to the child’s already established relationship with God.  A foundation rooted in them knowing how loved they are by God and their response to that love.

Claudia Margarita Schmitt lived in many different countries throughout her life. She has discovered over time that her roots are first in her Roman Catholic faith and also in the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd.  Everywhere she goes she recognizes the same language being used to discover the mystery of God. As an international formation leader for Catechesis of the Good Shepherd. She constantly has this experience of finding her roots.  She has been a catechists for 33 years and a formation leader for 32.  She lived for 8 years in Rome studying and working with Gianna Gobbi and Sofia Cavalletti. She describes this time as precious and that they taught her many things but first to be humble.
