Releasing the Angel: Saluting All Who Teach
All teachers are springtime workers in trusting that the seeds they sow in their students will produce one day people who make a difference in the wider community. Releasing the Angel issues from a similar act of faith that it will prove to be a book that teachers and other might leave open on their tables and from which they might gleam some occasional inspiration. Schools abound in Angels and not all of them are women nor are they all teachers! The school custodian, the nurse, the cafeteria director, the front desk receptionist, the school secretary—these are just a few of those people in our school communities whose angelic quality connects us to God in the ordinary and everyday.
