This beautiful, newly illustrated hardcover edition of the classic 1911 title by Mother Mary Loyola is the perfect gift for a First Communicant! This little 4" x 6" pocket gem contains more than just daily prayers: Two different sets of meditations for the Mass are accompanied by illustrations showing what the priest is doing at each stage. Add Mother Loyola's excellent examination of conscience, geared especially for children, devotional stories that foster a loving obedience, and the gorgeous full-color illustrations, and you'll be wishing you had such a book as a child!
(Please note: this book was written in 1911 and we have not updated it in any way, except to add illustrations. This was before the changes of Vatican II took place. The parts of this book which deal with the Mass will refer most strongly to the Latin Mass. However, there are many parts of the Mass that have not changed, such as the Kyrie, the Gloria and Creed, and the general structure of the Mass itself. Therefore what she has written is not at all inappropriate for those who attend the Ordinary form; only the illustrations, which show the priest facing ad orientem will differ significantly.)
We recently updated this book and improved many of the black and white illustrations, added lovely printed endsheets taken from a mid-19th century breviary, and, in response to many requests, have changed the cover image to make it more boy-friendly. However, we still do have numerous copies of the old version, so if you would prefer the version with the little girl on the cover, please make a note in your order comments and we will send that one instead of the new one.
