More About El Buen Pastor y el niño Un camino de gozo. Edición revisada

El Buen Pastor y el niño ofrece a los padres y educadores una manera gentil de entrar y honrar la vida espiritual auténtica de los niños. El mensaje constante de este libro es que la apertura natural de los niños y el asombro ante la presencia de Dios puede nutrirse con adultos que se preocupan por ellos, que los escuchan, oran y caminan con ellos en la fe. Al escuchar y aprender con el corazón sobre la historia y la imagen del Buen Pastor, los niños pueden ser guiados al gozo de la Buena Nueva. De esta simple parábola y su mensaje del amor inagotable de Jesús por ellos, los niños aprenden cómo el amor incondicional de Dios es parte de su mundo: en la familia, en la escuela y en la iglesia.  El Buen Pastor y el niño offers parents and educators a gentle way to enter into and honor the genuine spiritual life of children. The constant message of this book is that children’s natural openness to and wonder at God’s presence can be nurtured by caring adults who listen, pray, and journey with them in faith. By hearing and learning with the heart about the story and image of the Good Shepherd, children can be led to the joy of the Good News. From this simple parable and its message of Jesus’ unfailing love for them, children learn how God’s unconditional love is part of their world–in the family, in school, and in church.

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.

Connect to CGSUSA

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.

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.
