Therefore, brothers and sisters, you must be patient as you wait for the coming of the Lord.
7 Therefore, brothers and sisters, you must be patient as you wait for the coming of the Lord. Consider the farmer who waits patiently for the coming of rain in the fall and spring, looking forward to the precious fruit of the earth. 8 You also must wait patiently, strengthening your resolve, because the coming of the Lord is near. 9 Don’t complain about each other, brothers and sisters, so that you won’t be judged. Look! The judge is standing at the door!
10 Brothers and sisters, take the prophets who spoke in the name of the Lord as an example of patient resolve and steadfastness.
Baptism and Beyond is a sacramental preparation resource for Catholic parishes.
The Leader Guide contains everything a catechist needs to lead two parent sessions.
The first session prepares parents for the celebration of baptism by breaking open the symbols and scriptures of the rite.
The second session looks back on baptism and forward to first eucharist, with helps for parents to be the child's primary religious educators during the years in between.
This book includes creative ways to link the church with the home to keep parents and their child connected to the parish between sacraments, not just for sacraments.
You can use the Parent Guide to reinforce the material in the two parish sessions.
