Book review: The Weight of a Mass: A Tale of Faith
The Weight of a Mass: A Tale of Faith
by Josephine Nobisso (32 pages)
How important is one Mass? The Weight of a Mass is a beautifully illustrated book to teach children- and adults!- how much a single Mass is worth. When an old woman begs a crust of bread in exchange for one Mass, the angry baker receives an incredible surprise. The baker, his son, and the whole town are shown just how great one Mass is. The story is based on a true incident that occurred in a little town in Luxembourg many years ago. This wonderful book would make a great gift for a First Holy Communion.
