Seven Sacraments: Young Catholic Sacrament Book
Availability: 1 in stock
One of the best gifts you can give your child is a better understanding of the Catholic Faith. That’s exactly what you’ll do with this beautiful little book, The Seven Sacraments. Fr. Manousos has found an excellent way to explain the mystery of sanctifying grace to children in a profound and memorable way. The explanation, based on St. Thomas Aquinas, compares the natural development (from babies to adults to death) to the life of our soul…our natural life and our “super-life.” At each step of our two lives, we encounter special events along the way. In our “super-life,” the life of grace, these special events are the sacraments.
Each sacrament is explained in enough detail to give a basic, but very solid, understanding. The matter and form (although those words are not used) are indicated, and, very importantly, the effects of each sacrament are stated in detail.
Beautifully illustrated on every page, your child will get hours of enjoyment just looking at the pictures, which, in a way, are as instructive as the text itself. Ideal for children 5 to 10 years old. Sturdy and durable hardback. The book could be read to younger children and even though they would not grasp at the concepts, it would help to familiarize them with important sacramental words and images.
Imprimatur: Francis Cardinal Spellman, Archibishop of New York, February 23, 1954.
