The primary goal of sacramental preparation is conversion. Leading people to sacraments is about taking advantage of this unique opportunity to inform, form, and transform people's lives, in other words to invite them into a conversion experience. --from the Introduction
Sr. Linda Gaupin believes that sacramental preparation must be a conversion experience so powerful that it knocks people off their horses--as with St. Paul. It must be so vibrant that people want to respond to God's call in every moment of their lives and continue their journey of faith long after they have celebrated the sacrament. It should feed and nourish them in such a profound way that the result is fuller participation in the life of the Church. This kind of conversion requires special forms of catechesis--and in Embracing the Vision she offers it.
In this remarkable preparation program, Sr. Linda walks readers through the process of experiencing the sacraments as just such times of growth and conversion-- involving everyone in the parish community. She offers here everything a parish leader needs to make this happen: guidelines for the facilitator, liturgical prayers, catechist guides, student materials, and family handouts--all in one package. The accompanying CD contains both PDF and Word documents for easy personalization and reproduction of all components of the program.
Highly recommended for all pastoral leaders, DREs, Principals, and all who work with parish sacrament preparation.Read the Table of Contents for this book.Peek Inside! See a SAMPLE chapter from this book.
