Resource Guides for Teachers, Catechists and Youth Ministers

It is all what we would call, a teaching moment. Check the site out: "Catechesis on the papacy is an integral part of planning for the visit of Pope Benedict XVI to the United States in April. The Archdiocese of Washington, in collaboration with the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops' Secretariat for Evangelization and Catechesis, has created resource guides to support the work of teachers, catechists and youth ministers. These materials offer direction and referenced suggestions for the development of two to five hours of grade appropriate and parish/school appropriate lessons focused on the papacy and the papal visit. They also include material suitable for adults."

Conversion -- setting the heart on fire -- so often we struggle, at least we give ample excuse for not being on fire with our faith, when we are charged to help pass on the faith to another... This week we are being given all sorts of opportunities to express what all long for in their hearts -- faith, hope and love. So with proper guidance and understanding of the Sacramental Life we can help instruct our youth to be filled with the joy so abundantly displayed by our Holy Father this week.
