Patricia Coulter generously share’s in the introduction to this collection of essays us that: “This little work is in joyful recognition of the centenary of Sofia Cavalletti’s birth, and in grateful acknowledgment of the blessing of her of friendship for almost forty years. To give the context out of which these essays grew, we need to go ‘way back when.’“ The background to these essays begins with Patricia’s first period of study at the Good Shepherd Center of Catechesis in Rome (1975-1977), established by Sofia Cavalletti and Gianna Gobbi. As well, as her post-graduate studies at the faculty of theology at the University of St. Michael’s College where Patricia researched aspects of Sofia’s writings and work in light of sources—ancient and contemporary—that influenced Sofia. The essays are grouped into two broad categories. The first is called roots, to indicate some of the sources from which Sofia Cavalletti drew plentifully. The other is called shoots, to indicate some of the outgrowth in the catechesis that she and Gianna Gobbi developed. These essays were written forty years ago, however they refer to seminal writings of Sofia, and to pivotal figures and documents in 20th century Christian thought and Catholic theology, that remain significant today.
