Talk by Dr. James Pauley, Professor of Theology and Catechetics at the Franciscan University of Steubenville, given to CTK's catechists, clergy, and leaders in Liturgy of the Word for Children on March 17, 2018. The talk focused on the liturgy and inspired many of our catechists. CTK Director of Youth Discipleship John Hoving commented,
"Dr. James Pauley's talk following this year's Bosco Dinner filled me with a profound sense of gratitude for the treasures we have in the Sacred Liturgy. The information was not new, but it was woven together in such a compelling fashion, full of wit and wisdom, that I found myself entering into the liturgy more deeply the very next day! He reminded us that the liturgy must be need-based. And a quote he shared from the Catechism I felt summed up his talk well: 'God is an eternal exchange of love, and He has destined us to share in that exchange.' (CCC 221)"
