Description

  • Teach children the importance of the Mass for the Catholic Church
  • Luminous old-world watercolor paintings grace the interior of the book and gold foil artwork adds elegance
  • The tale of a poor devout widow begs for a scrap of bread from a rich faithless baker

When a poor devout widow begs for a scrap of bread from a rich faithless baker, she promises to participate in the king’s wedding mass as payment for the baker’s generosity. The baker writes “One Mass” on a scrap of paper and places it on his scale to determine how much bread it is worth. To his and the entire town’s surprise, nothing in the shop, not even the gigantic wedding cakes made for the king, outweighs the simple piece of paper representing the true worth of a mass. Luminous old-world watercolor paintings grace the interior of the book and gold foil artwork lends an air of solemnity and sacred beauty to the story.
