5 Minutes with Christ: Time for Teachers

on Tuesday, 22 November 2011.

The perfect Christmas gift for your favorite teacher!

Busy teachers have a new resource to help them build meaningful prayer time into their day. A just-released book, 5 Minutes with Christ, edited by Rev. Lou DelFra, C.S.C., and Ann Primus Berends, has assembled inspirational reflections crafted by graduates and associates of Notre Dame's Alliance for Catholic Education (ACE).

Focusing on the ministry of Christ the Teacher, 5 Minutes with Christ provides Catholic educators with the spiritual nourishment they need during their busy days. Each reflection is based on an event in the life of Jesus and follows a simple format: an excerpt from one of the gospels; a personal reflection by a teacher; and a short prayer.

Teachers can use these reflections and prayers as starting points for their own daily devotion. The book is ideal for teacher retreats and spiritual learning communities among faculty members.

Father Lou DelFra is ACE's Director of Pastoral Life. Ann Primus Berends is an Associate Director in ACE.The book can be purchased from the publisher at the Ave Maria Press website.
