Today we listen to the words of Gianna Gobbi from her book Listening to God with Children. We have part of chapter 5 and part of chapter 6 as a way to help prepare ourselves for the beginning of the year in the atrium. The pages read include pages 41 through 53. Then Mary Mirrione joins us for a short discussion on this reading lifting up some important pieces from this beautiful work.  

This precious book of Gianna’s has unfortunately been out of print for 2 years.   We have been actively working on a new book which will contain Gianna’s legacy with updated information and new content.  We hope to have this published by next Spring.  We will be keeping everyone informed though our Member Memos and In the Meadow emails which come monthly to our members. 

Mary Mirrione began working with CGS in 1992. She and a team of catechists and parents built atria at St Anne’s in Gilbert, Arizona for their 1800 children. She has been a formation leader since 1997 serving as such at home and abroad. She also works with Mother Teresa’s Missionaries of Charity throughout the United States and around the world. Mary served on the Board for CGSUSA and is a graduate of the first cohort at Aquinas Institute of Theology to receive a Masters in Pastoral Studies with an emphasis in the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd. She is a faculty member of Kino Catechetical Institute in the Diocese of Phoenix. Since 2010, she serves as the National Director for the United States Association of the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd.
