內容簡介 This volume includes the 1929 version of The Child in the Church prepared by E.M. Standing and the sequel to that never before printed in English: The Life of Christ in the Liturgical Year translated from Italian. The third section is a taken from a series of talks Montessori gave and was compiled in 1955 by Georgette and Anne-Marie Bernard in a French book called L'Education Religieuse. Montessori reprinted The Life of Christ is the Liturgical Year in 1949, and that is the text which we have translated. This and the talks, completed just a few years before her death, seem to be a culmination of her experiences. The seeds of the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd are contained in these pages and Catechists and Montessori teachers alike will find "rich food, but not too much" to ponder as they continue to follow the child.
