There is perhaps no finer guide in Scripture about how we are called to live as people of God than the Beatitudes. They outline our discipleship, they provide a moral compass, and they suggest ways that our entire way of life can be changed. The noted au- thors in this volume help us understand the Beatitudes, address them in our catechetical programs, and put them into practice in our lives. This fine addition to the Called to Be a Catechist series will demonstrate how every member of the parish can help create an active, engaged Beatitude Community—focused on Christ’s teachings and being a vibrant and Spirit-filled witness of the Good News.

discovering discipleship
Inspiration and Professional Growth
Discipleship comes in all shapes and sizes, and the call applies to all the baptized. No wonder, then, that it’s so hard to define, much less put into practice. This volume describes several ways of being disciples. The noted authors in this volume discuss the lifetime journey of faith, crises of faith, Scripture, spirituality, discipleship in the Catechism of the Catholic Church, Mary as the first disciple, and much more. This fine addition to the Called to Be a Catechist series is sure to give catechists a well-round- ed picture of how each of us is called to respond to Jesus and live a life of discipleship.

The role of the catechist Inspiration and Professional Growth
One of the first questions any new catechist asks is,“What’s my role?” The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops’ National Directory for Catechesis answers that question by outlining six important tasks for every catechist. This helpful booklet highlights those tasks and explores essential practices that make faith formation a life-giving vocation. Written by a leader or practitioner in the catechetical field, each chapter ends with encouragement to reflect on a task and to dialogue with other catechists about the wisdom received. Both new and experienced catechists will find inspiration and ideas for their very next session!
