More About The History of the Kingdom of God, Part 2: Liturgy and the Building of the Kingdom

The History of the Kingdom of God, Part 2: Liturgy and the Building of the Kingdom is Sofia Cavalletti’s revision to 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 of 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 Rojcewicz writes in the introduction, The second volume…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. inch  Her understanding of liturgy of transformative prayer brings about God’s kingdom on earth as it is in heaven makes this work of interest to all who love liturgy and for whom liturgy is central to their Christian life.

Welcome to CGSUSA

We believe God and the child have a unique relationship with one another. Children need their own place to foster the growth of that relationship. The growth of this relationship is assisted by the adult, but is directed by the Spirit of God within the child.

What is the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd? The Catechesis of the Good Shepherd was born from the joy of the children’s encounter with God. It has been observed that children of the same developmental stage, even those from widely varying cultural backgrounds, respond to elements of the Christian message in the same way.

In Catechesis of the Good Shepherd adults are given the opportunity to embrace a method of catechesis (or religious education) that will deepen one’s relationship with God. Catechist formation in Catechesis of the Good Shepherd is both instructive as well as experiential. It captivates both the head as well as the heart.

We read in the Gospel of Mark that Jesus sent his disciples out in pairs, two by two; the journey was not meant to be a solitary one. It is essential for us as catechists to support one another as we prepare materials, work in the atrium, and observe the child. We come together in unity, as members of CGSUSA, to share the joy of this work.

Support CGSUSA

Through their joy, their wonder and awe, their capacity for love and prayer, and their radical simplicity, children offer us adults a glimpse of what it means to fall in love with God. This has been the work of CGSUSA for over 30 years: to advocate for the child’s joy.
