One of the best gifts you can give a child is a better understanding of the Faith. That‚Äôs what you‚Äôll do with this beautiful book, The Seven Sacraments. Fr. Manousos explains the mystery of sanctifying grace in a profound and memorable way, based on Saint Thomas Aquinas. He compares our natural development (from birth to death) to the life of our soul‚Ä¶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. The matter, form and effects of each sacrament is explained to give children a basic, but solid understanding.
With over 50 beautiful color illustrations, your child will get hours of enjoyment just looking at the pictures. Ideal for children 5 to 10 years old. Durable hardcover. The book could be read to younger children and even though they would not grasp all the concepts, it would help to familiarize them with important sacramental words and images. Older children and even adults will enjoy the book too!
