Catechists: Inspired by the Herald Angels

As we celebrate this Christmas season, let the Herald Angels be an inspiration for us catechists.

To be a herald is to be a bearer of the Good News. Each time we teach, we bring tidings of great joy: God is with us in Jesus Christ! We are, indeed, privileged to be heralds of the Gospel.

May the Herald Angels inspire you this Christmas season and throughout the New Year! God’s blessings during this Christmas season. I’ll not post during vacation…I’ll meet you back here January 2!
