§ The National Conference for Catechetical Leadership Web site makes available two interesting articles from the November/December edition of the Catholic Leader Magazine. Both of these are on reconciliation:
Missed Opportunity By Msgr. Patrick Bishop
“Confession, penance, reconciliation: each title describes an aspect of the sacrament. I want to zero in on the last one. It is, after all, the opportunity offered to us by the church to admit, learn from, and put behind us the hurts caused by our remaining in darkness and failing to walk in the light of Christ.”
Sacrament and Social Ministry By Robert Schreiter, C.P.P.S.
“When catechists and other ministers hear the word “reconciliation,” they are likely to think immediately of the sacrament of reconciliation. This is not surprising, since this sacrament is so central to Catholic identity and imagination. Yet alongside the preparation for and practice of the sacrament another important dimension of reconciliation in the church’s life and ministry has been drawing attention: social reconciliation, as in the bringing together of parties that have been divided, the healing from the wounds of abuse and trauma, and the restoring of communication in families.”
§ Spirit of the Season is a publication from the Liturgy Office of the Bishops' Conference of England and Wales.
"It is for teachers, catechists and all involved with worship with children. It hopes to offer reflection and information in the area of worship."
Previous issues of the publication are available online from year 2000 onward and offer much information that is of value. The index of past issues provides a good idea the topics covered and in which issue you can find resources on a given topic.
