By Ann Dickinson Degenhard
Children's Liturgy of the Word provides
liturgy preparation pages and liturgy guides for every Sunday and Holyday of
Obligation. Each liturgy guide includes words of dismissal for the presider, an
opening and closing prayer, petitions for the Prayer of the Faithful, and the
full text of an interactive homily/reflection that connects the Word to the
life experiences of children.
Children's Liturgy of the Word allows the
power of the liturgy to act on children, facilitating their growing
relationship with God and allowing them to testify to their own experiences of
God's presence. Instead of following a traditional classroom model of a lesson
followed by an activity or game, this resource closely follows the structure of
the Liturgy of the Word being celebrated in the main assembly, as stipulated by
the Directory for Masses with Children and the introduction to the Lectionary
for Masses with Children. This resource makes leading a liturgically
appropriate celebration of the Word easy, even for inexperienced leaders.
Paperback, 8 3/8 x 10 7/8, 256 pages.
