Taken from My Catholic Faith
Original copyright, 1949, 1955, 1958
I showed this picture to the kids today and we were all filled with wonder and awe. Isn't that the most perfect way to approach Holy Communion! Can't you just imagine a child walking toward Mary to hold Jesus! I know how our children approach me to hold Lourdes so this really spoke to their hearts. I loved it for myself also. I can get so distracted with keeping the children in line that my mind wonders, but I just keep thinking of this image when walking up to receive Jesus. We are using this book for religion as part of our homeschool curriculum. It is so very rich!
I discovered this book on our shelf about a month ago. I literally CANNOT stop reading it. The illustrations are second to none. Most pages are filled with such detailed art work. I would buy it again for the pictures alone. I have learned and relearned so much about our beautiful Catholic faith. Our faith is so rich and meaningful. EVERYTHING means something. Everything. I am trying to absorb His beautiful wisdom through all the guidelines the Church has given to us. It is all out of so much LOVE.
|We all really should meditate upon this picture often perhaps right before Holy Communion.|
