More About Preaching with Children
Preaching in congregations with many children is one of the most difficult challenges many preachers face. Whether you are a priest, deacon, catechist, or prayer leader, this book offers practical help in crafting specific homilies for children. Drawing on insights gleaned within the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd, Garrido helps preachers understand key characteristics of childhood and children’s spirituality and presents ways to reflect on Scripture through the lens of the young child. Preachers will discover that they are preaching with children, rather than preaching to them.
Ann Garrido has prepared a beautiful guide, rich in insights for preparing and delivering homilies with children that draws from the treasures of the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd. In doing so, she has presented a way of celebrating the Word of God that is not just for children, but for the child in each of us.
