The Heart of a Catechist shares an address from Pope Francis to the International Congress on Catechesis that emphasizes the importance of catechists and their value to the New Evangelization, for ministering to those at the periphery. This affordable pamphlet will inspire confidence in new recruits, help reenergize veterans, and is a useful tool for engaging future catechists. Catechists are the backbone of a religious education program; they look to you for inspiration, guidance, and support. The Heart of a Catechist presents Pope Francis’s message on the catechist’s relationship with Christ in order to share the Good News with others. It is a call to action that offers reflection questions to help catechists connect deeply to their own spiritual path and call to spread God’s Word.
