Mother Mary Loyola; 6.25in; 4.5in x 0.5in; Hardcover, 144 pages
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. Thus the parts of this book which deal with the Mass will adhere most closely to the Latin Mass. However, she does not include the actual prayers of the Mass, and of course, the overall structure, as well as certain parts, of the Mass have not changed, such as the Kyrie, the Gloria and Creed. 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.)
