Breakfast in Bethlehem
By Edward Looney. It is Christmas Eve and a young boy and his family are celebrating Midnight Mass at St. Stephen Church. The flickering candles and ringing Church bells welcome Baby Jesus. After Mass, back home and snuggled in bed, the boy dreams of an angel who journeys with him to Bethlehem to see the newborn King. The beautiful story of the Nativity unfolds before his eyes as he witnesses the generosity of an innkeeper, the music of a little drummer boy, the gifts of three kings, and the joy of the Holy Family. When he awakens from his dream, the boy's grandfather helps him to understand Jesus' gift of Himself to us as the Bread of Life in the Eucharist. Breakfast in Bethlehem brings to life a deeper meaning in the birth of Jesus. It is written in a simple style with beautifully vibrant illustrations. This book would be a perfect gift under the Christmas tree for your children and grandchildren. Hardcover, 34 pages.
