The life of the Virgin Mary for Catholic children. The narrative follows the story of Mary from Birth, Childhood, through the Annunciation, Marriage, Journey to Bethlehon, the early childhood of Jesus, His Ministry, the Crucifixion, Resurrection, beginning of the Church, and the Assumption. Although concentrating upon the Divine Attributes of Mary, Her participation in events commemorated to-day in the Church, the emphasis is placed upon Mary as the Mother of Jesus and the deep spiritual communion between Them. A quiet, thorough narrative which should be of value to the Catholic child as it not only clarifies the church festivals and prayers in honor of Mary (giving calendar dates) but simplifies the Scriptural stories. Traditional pen and ink sketches by Robb Beebe; Imprimatur Archbishop Kiley of Milwaukee.
