Another Great Book from Marian Press
Will You Come to Mass? inspires readers of all ages to love and console Jesus by coming to Holy Mass.
This beautifully illustrated book inspires children and families to love and console Jesus by coming to Holy Mass. Young hearts will follow the little lamb into the arms of Jesus. In a simple but memorable way, it conveys the joy and graces that are available to all those who participate in the Holy Eucharist.
Once again, Susan J. Bellavance and Sara Tang have created a beautifully illustrated volume for young children ages 4 to 6, and their families. Based on the invitation to the Great Banquet (see Lk 14:15-24), church bells, like angel voices, invite all the characters, to join in the weekly celebration – but one by one they each give some excuse! The sloth is too sleepy, the robin is too busy cleaning, the horse is working, and the monkeys have a game to play. But the little lamb is different. When he hears the bells, he feels a sparkle and says, “I want to go! Just lead me!” When the church door opens, can you find the little lamb? Here’s a hint: He is where we all long to be!
Susan Bellavance served with the Missionaries of Charity, was a Catholic elementary and junior high school teacher, and founding member of Mount Royal Academy in Sunapee, New Hampshire. She also served as a catechist and as a youth group leader. In addition to writing, Susan is a Marian Helper who currently volunteers at Bishop Peterson Residence, a home for retired and elderly priests in the Diocese of Manchester. She resides with her cherished husband, Dale, and two treasured daughters, Sophia and Marguerite, in New Hampshire.
