    I teach 6th grade religion at a Catholic School in Dallas, Texas and use your Sunday reading worksheets with my students to help them understand the Sunday readings. I also use the pages with me Religious Education class on Sunday mornings. The students are able to grasp in better detail the readings for each Sunday. Thank you

  2. Thank you for your many helpful resources. My family has benefitted greatly from your hard work.

    For the Third Sunday of Advent, the explanation of Gaudete Sunday could use one small change: the Latin gaudete doesn’t mean “joy.” Rather, it is an imperative verb form: “rejoice!”

    Respectfully and in gratitude,

    Andrew T. Dolan
