The Common Catholic Evangelizer

Sadlier Religion Consultant, Carole Eipers, writes about the meaning and importance of evangelization. Carole’s newest book, Everyday Evangelization, will be published by Twenty-Third Publications in August 2018.

I grew up in a time when the word “evangelization” was not part of our Catholic vocabulary. It applied, it seemed, only to other faith communities. And this in spite of Jesus’ clear mandate to all Christians, "Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you.”

How Catechetical Leadership Can Make the Most of Learning Opportunities

A few years ago I was invited to write a small booklet called Pep Talks for Parish Ministers. It was part of a series that addressed some of the challenges faced by those in parish and school ministry and offered ideas and inspiration for dealing with them. As I pulled together the table of contents, I contacted several people in leadership and solicited their ideas. Several noted how they were becoming jaded. Pressing demands on their time and energy led to exhaustion and, in the worst cases, burnout.

How Parish Catechetical Leaders Can Engage Families with Rituals of Faith by Sharing Stories

If I had to name a single issue around catechesis that crops up again and again as I traverse the country, it’s how to equip catholic families to share and form faith in the home.

A Prayer for Easter Eyes

Some of us are old enough to remember a song about the Boston subway system called the “M.T.A.” It bemoaned the fate of Charlie, who didn’t have the correct fare in order to exit the train. I knew the feeling as I ran into a series of travel glitches while trying to get home from a lengthy series of presentations this past weekend. “Will she ever return, oh will she ever return…?” was my own chorus of lament as I watched the airport monitors announce delays and missed connections. My husband sent a text that contained the secret to coping with my travel woes: “Go with the flow.” When life throws our plans out of whack, it’s the sanest way to travel.

2018 Lenten Ideas for Parishes and Schools

Ash Wednesday for some is like a religious New Year’s. It’s the kick-off for Lenten resolutions that begin with great fervor and dim as the six weeks of the season drag on. I recall my own experience of giving something up for Lent. What seemed pretty courageous in the beginning – sacrificing chocolate, for example – turned into drudgery and then resentment by Holy Week. Binging on Easter candy took the meaning of the festival season that follows Lent a little too literally.
