Joe Paprocki, best-selling author of The Catechist’s Toolbox, has written the first step-by-step book that demonstrates how you can teach a 75-minute catechetical session with practical techniques that expand upon the textbook to create a more prayerful and experiential climate in the classroom. While textbooks are an essential tool for catechists to present the teachings of the Catholic Church in a clear and accurate manner, Beyond the Catechist’s Toolbox gives you the framework to guide your students toward personal transformation. By using Catholic rituals, prayers, and the Liturgy of the Word, Paprocki provides suggestions on how to get catechesis to resemble Mass more than class. Reading a textbook can help children know about God, and Beyond the Catechist’s Toolbox helps them know God personally as they prayerfully become lifelong disciples of Jesus Christ.

Written by St. John Paul II, this apostolic exhortation describes the important and unique roles the Church, the laity, and the family play in ensuring that all Catholics not only understand the Faith, but are prepared to live it fully. “ St. John Paul II gives the catechist the vision, methods, and roadmap for effective and dynamic catechesis in our modern culture.” --Bishop Kevin Vann, Bishop of Orange

Shortly into his papacy, Pope Francis was hailed by the news media and Christians and non-Christians alike as a refreshing figure in the Vatican. His humility, piety, and forward-thinking ideas have been celebrated around the world. Reflections from Pope Francisfeatures brief excerpts for contemplation from Pope Francis's homilies, speeches, and addresses - along with an invitation to prayer, writing, and action in a unique journal-style book, with space for readers to write their own reflections on the powerful messages. Also included are passages from Scripture that highlight important themes for humanity - such as care for the poor mercy, forgiveness, and brotherhood. 'Hoping against hope! Today too, amid so much darkness, we need to see the light of hope and to be men and women who bring hope to others. To protect creation, to protect every man and every woman, to look upon them with tenderness and love, is to open up a horizon of hope. It is to let a shaft of light break through the heavy clouds. It is to bring the warmth of hope.' Pope Francis'We have in this volume a vision of how Pope Francis sees the mission of the Church and of society. His reflections are inspiring and challenging, demanding and joy-filled. Anyone accepting the invitation to journal with Pope Francis will be enriched.' Bishop Robert Morneau, Auxiliary Bishop Emeritus of Green Bay
