The Holy Heroes Mom Favorites!

Absolutely enchanting--these books have received many awards for the artwork, story, and strong Catholic message!

Portrait of the Son: The richest man in the world, with the most varied and treasured art collection in existence, begets the most wonderful son who, like himself, loves and appreciates every creation they possess. Under the father’s solicitous eye, and with their motherly estate keeper’s assistance, the exceptional son grows in wisdom and stature, extending his wealth to whoever wants it. What becomes of this son? And what later becomes of the treasures when the father decides to offer his immensely vast collection at auction? What superlative will be the most superlative of all?

Weight of a Mass: Couched in the language and look of a fairy tale, and rich in solemn beauty, this tale of what happened when a destitute widow begs only a crust of bread in return for offering the Royal Wedding Mass is based on a true miracle.

This beautiful story will teach children the incomprehensible importance of a Mass.

Take it to the Queen: In this original fable, when once-favored villagers transgress against their king, they seek the intercession of the humble neighbor who became their queen.

This beautiful story will teach children the incomprehensible importance of Our Lady.
