Ways to Nurture the Relationship with God
There is an inner hunger and thirst in us, which is a sign of our longing for God.
The meditations in this book explore and illuminate the Christian message and are the fruit of Sofia Cavalletti's meditations with adults gathered together as listeners to the Word. Because this book arose from actual encounters, the writers invite you to enter into it as a fellow listener, meditating on scripture and liturgy alongside them.
“This book is an invitation to draw close and listen deeply to God’s full and abundant love for us. The gift of these rich and deep meditations will nurture our hearts and minds and enable us to more deeply enjoy God’s presence in our lives. Many thanks, Sofia and Patricia!”
--Mary Mirrione, National Director of the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd
“Reading Ways to Nurture the Relationship with God is a bit like pulling up a chair to join Sofia and Patricia for a meditation that touches the heart and mind. It is an excellent resource not only for those of us involved as catechists and formation leaders in Catechesis of the Good Shepherd but for anyone looking for a helpful way to linger over and grow in understanding of the scriptures. The rich words and diagrams stayed with me long after I had put the book away. In the chapter on the Good Shepherd Sofia says of Psalm 23: ‘This is a real jewel.’ Those same words aptly describe this splendid book. Indeed, it is a real jewel!”

“For decades now, catechists across North America have shared tidbits of Sofia Cavalletti’s adult reflections in their formation courses. Now finally we have many of these reflections in written form to meditate upon at length. Cavalletti has been recognized internationally for her unparalleled understanding of the religious potential of children. These meditations betray her equally unparalleled devotion to life-long scripture study, rooted in the original biblical languages.”
