My grandblessings love this story.
There was a reference to bringing the Infant Jesus from the Nativity a set for a blessing in the sourcebook our parish’s worship ministry uses for planning. We decided to incorporate it into our Advent celebrations. After doing more research we saw video of Pope Francis celebrating the blessing at the Vatican and discovered the book which we ordered. The invitation to bring the Baby Jesus to church for a blessing was well received. We plan to make it a tradition in our parish. Thank you.
The book is a wonderful story with beautiful illustrations. It was a gift and the children 6,8and 3 loved it when read to them or when they read it themselves.
Adorable story that both my kindergartner and 3rd grader liked. We read it multiple times during the Christmas season. They always found new questions to ask, and I learned a bit about Italian culture as well. The ending was a nice surprise. It opened up discussions about taking things without asking (#7), comforting the sorrowful (the beatitudes), and honoring your father and mother (or grandfather and grandmother) by being immediately obedient (#4), among other things.
