A prayer book for young Catholics in a language so simple that every child can understand, combining much useful instruction for Communion and Confirmation with a large selection of devotions and prayers. It is truly a beautiful little book. Ideal for First Holy Communions and Confirmations, but suitable for any occasion (or no occasion). Everything a Catholic child must know about the practice of the Catholic Faith & spirituality – all packed into 287 pages. Includes tons of prayers and over 90 illustrations (over half are in full color).
An interesting feature: The missal section has 12 illustrations to help the child follow the main parts of the Mass. The priest is shown in each, but the reredos behind the altar has a DIFFERENT image in each picture. The image on the reredos is from the life of Our Lord or the Apostles and reflects what the action of the priest represents. For example, at the Offertory, Our Lord is shown being scourged. At the Lavabo, Pilate is shown washing his hands. At the elevation, Our Lord is shown being lifted on the Cross. A thoughtful child, with a little instruction, could be lead to a profound understanding of the Mass from these details alone.
