The inspirational reflections on Christ as Teacher in 5 Minutes with Christ provide educators with the spiritual nourishment they need during their busy days. Crafted by graduates and associates of the University of Notre Dame’s Alliance for Catholic Education (ACE) program, the most prestigious Catholic teacher-training program in the United States, each reflection is based on an event in the life of Jesus and invites the reader to connect with him in the chaos of daily life.
Each reflection 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 or as resources to use in the few minutes they have to pray during the school day. Teachers—particularly those in Catholic schools—are in constant need of spiritual nourishment and inspiration. 5 Minutes with Christ was developed to meet this need. This educator-specific resource is ideal for teacher retreats and spiritual learning communities among faculty members.
