First Communion Gift Book

Perhaps you are still looking for a First Communion gift? The book Friendship With Jesus by Amy Welborn might be a good choice.

Friendship with Jesus: Pope Benedict XVI Speaks to Children on Their First Holy Communion


Friendship With Jesus: Pope Benedict XVI Talks to Children on Their First Holy Communion is based on a dialogue in St. Peter's Square that took place in 2006




Artist Ann Engelhart thought the dialogue would make a wonderful children's book and asked me to help edit it and get it published. It was first published in England by the Catholic Truth Society in 2010 and then picked up by Ignatius Press in 2011.




St. George - April 23

St. George is in the Loyola Kids Book of Saints by Amy Welborn.   The only part of the chapter that is online in any form is the last page, so I grabbed that and scanned the first page of the chapter from a copy - so take a look. In the first part of the chapter I try to strike the balance between what we think we know about George and the legendary material. But I also always try to respect the legendary material as an expression of a truth - here, the courage required to follow Christ. He's in the section, "Saints are people who are brave."
