 Our Description

 

Geoffrey Bliss, S.J.

 

My Path To Heaven is an old-fashioned "retreat-a-book" that helps children ponder the truths of the Faith and calls them to live lives of holiness in accordance with those truths.

Based on the traditional St. Ignatius Retreat (trusted by Catholics for centuries) and adapted particularly for children, this clear, simple, thoughtful presentation of the Faith is ideal for parents seeking to form their children in holiness. It is:

  • Serious: it acknowledges and speaks to the deep seriousness that attentive parents know lies in the hearts of even the very youngest children
  • Practical: it emphasizes proper devotion and right action, not feelings
  • Substantial: it considers central points of the Faith (see details at right) and addresses the issues that face every Christian, even the Youngest
  • Prayerful: it speaks reverently of holy things, inspiring children to develop reverence toward Jesus, Mary, and the saints
  • Instructional: chapters conclude with questions to help children review what they've learned, and to help them choose to strive for holiness
  • Scriptural: chapters include numerous Scripture references
  • Captivating: pictures keep the attention of the most restless children, as they discover in them exciting details about the Faith

Faith basics covered:

 

 

Love • Salvation, Man's fall • The Nativity, God's will • Christ's Passion, Angels • The Trinity, Heaven & Hell, The Incarnation, The Sacraments

 

PLUS:

  • Free will: a great gift and a great responsibility
  • God's overwhelming mercy and patience
  • God's generosity: why He deserves all our love
  • Heaven: why now is the time to begin seeking it
  • The promise of victory to those who try to be holy
  • How Your child can avoid the Devil's snares
  • The three ways to help your child make good choices
  • And much more! 1t 

My Path to Heaven is best For children ages 9 to 12, but even nonreaders can enjoy the rich illustrations.

This item received 4 stars overall. The Perfect At-Home Children's Retreat

My Path to Heaven is a children's retreat in the style of St. Ignatius.
 
The books is approximately 9x12 inches and has full-page black-white pencil drawings.
 
The children are to do one segment per day; each lasting 20-40  minutes depending on reading ability and amount of discussion (we did light discussion then left a lot of open-ended questions to think about throughout the day - and returned to a closing discussion in the evening). Each segment contains an image the child is to study (just enough to pique interest), followed by 2 pages of information in large font and spaced nicely, ending with a list of review questions and an invitation to view the picture again.

The children are instructed at the beginning of the book to also think of that image during his evening prayer time.

This item received 5 stars overall. A spiritual retreat for your child

Over the past few weeks I've been having my 8 1/2 year old daughter read My Path To Heaven.  The book is an Ignatian retreat for children.  The back cover of the book suggests that this book is best suited for children between the ages of 9 to 12, but I see no reason why a child as young as seven would have any difficulty grasping and understanding this book provided he or she is a good reader.

While it is not an ARKive book from Sophia Institute Press, this book was originally published in 1936 under a different title.  I think knowing that can be useful information for parents who are looking for books with good sound catechesis.  Most Catholic children are getting a watered down version of their faith in religious education classes and a book like this is a real find in the sea of Catholic books available for children today.  As I read through the Full Review...
