Product DescriptionSunday Mass can be a confusing time for young children and sometimes they express their curiosity with many questions. This book, The Mass I Receive Jesus, from the Gloria series, attempts to explain the Mass to children in clear and easy to understand language. Starting with reasons for going to church on Sunday and ending with walking out of the church, The Mass addresses each portion of the service as to what is happening and why the priest and people are doing what they are doing. Helpful illustrations further explain what is happening and give the child a visual picture of the written explanation he or she is reading. For instance, when the book is explaining the gospel, it gives a definition of the word gospel, "good news" and then goes on to explain that the good news is Jesus and that the gospel tells us about his life and teachings. The illustration shows the people in the congregation standing and the priest reading the selection for that Mass. Children tend to be more interested in something if they know what is happening and if they can participate and The Mass I Receive Jesus allows them to fully do so.
