 Our Description


The kind of reading Catholic families need at Christmas—and can rarely find anymore.



Charming illustrations that capture Christmas for your little ones—and a message for older children and adults on the real meaning of Christmas from one of the 20th century's best speakers: Fulton J. Sheen.

Archbishop Fulton Sheen’s charming retelling of the Christmas story makes a wonderful read-aloud for the whole family. Illustrated throughout in color. The late Archbishop offers food for thought for the older members of the family—thoughts that can be easily explained to the younger members with the aid of illustrations. (And these aren’t the cartoonish illustrations we see in so many children’s books these days, even in some Catholic children’s books. These are illustrations which elevate and inspire while capturing a child’s imagination.)


Archbishop Sheen at his best:


"The purpose of God’s coming to man was not to make us nice people, but to make us new creatures."


"There were only two classes of people who heard the cry that night; shepherds and wise men. Shepherds: those who know they know nothing. Wise men: those who know they do not know everything. Only the very simple and the very learned discovered God…"


Hardcover with lovely color illustrations
