A monk prays deep in the forest. It looks like he is doing just simple, ordinary tasks, such as chopping wood and and tending to his garden. But as he works he is really growing prayer. The monk prays continually throughout the day and night, and, as the seasons pass, he becomes a holy man.This delightful, beautifully illustrated book teaches children that no matter what they are doing, or what hour of the day it is, they too, can pray.
The Gospel of Christ, with its message of mercy to all who repent for the forgiveness of their sins through the Lord' death and resurrection, is incomparably greater than the story of Jonah. Yet this prophetic tale, so charming and disarming in its implicitly and power, remains forever' Christ' own testimony' the unique signs of God' saving work in His beloved Son Jesus.
SVS Press is pleased to provide this illustrated version of the prophecy of Jonah especially for children. May it serve one more time, and over and again, to open our minds and hearts to the Gospel of Christ which it is inspired to prefigure and signify.
