This title will be available in March 2022.

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 written a beautiful book that presents children as a profound gift to the preaching ministry and liturgical life of the Church. Children are “serious persons,” capable of discerning the deep mysteries of the Kingdom of God as revealed in the Scriptures. Drawing on her long experience of the Catechism of the Good Shepherd, Dr. Garrido describes how the atrium fosters a rich metanarrative of the Christian faith within the developmental journey of the child. The theological insights of children are a great gift to the Church at large. Dr. Garrido’s work explains why the Church should preach with children, not simply to them. This wonderful book made me want to gather with children, sit with them, hear the Word, and be transformed by their preaching!

Fr. Thomas Esselman, C.M. Assistant Provincial Congregation of the Mission Western Province

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.

Mary Mirrione National Director The United States Association of The Catechesis of the Good Shepherd

Master catechist Ann Garrido introduces preachers to some essential insights about the faith life of children and their instinctual desire for active participation in Word and Worship. Taking the joys and sorrows of children seriously, all preachers can enter into a more life-giving faith conversation with these littlest among us.

Fr. Gregory Heille, OP Professor of Preaching and Evangelization Director, Doctor of Ministry in Preaching Aquinas Institute of Theology

In less than eighty pages this brilliant read effectively communicates all the most innovative and thrilling aspects of the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd methodology that have so many ministry professionals over the moon; it is engaging, persuasive, informative, accessible, and theologically gorgeous. The practical examples are "rich food and just enough of it" for busy pastors, parents, and catechists.
