The Twelve Great Feasts for Children Series

 

A MESSAGE FROM ABBESS MELANIA (November 26, 2020)
As we celebrate Thanksgiving this year, we are reminded that, even in difficult times, there are endless reasons to thank God.  Personally, we are very aware of the blessing of still having a monastery after the recent fires and of staying healthy in these times of COVID.  Even more so, we are grateful to God for you our friends, who are always there for us, even in these tough times.  And yes, these are tough times, but Christ’s light shines brighter in darkness.  As we journey towards the Nativity, may we all let His light confront and banish the darkness in our own souls so that we, along with the Christmas star, may be lights leading others to our Incarnate God!
The Twelve Great Feasts for Children Series
Illustrated Poems about the Great Feasts of the Liturgical Year

 

This series was written by Mother Melania and illustrated by Bonnie Gillis.  Elegant watercolor illustrations highlight the beauty of each of the Church's feast days.  The simple, psalm-like poems are written especially for children, but the whole family will enjoy them. 

 

Great for preschoolers to peruse in church, or for early readers.
