Ways to Nurture the Relationship with God
is an inner hunger and thirst in us, which is a sign of our longing for God.
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!”
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
