Sept. 29: Feast of the Archangels


Merry Michaelmas!  Here is a great book for today’s FEAST day:

Thomas the Apostle: Builder and Believer9.29 cover

by Barbara Yoffie

This book is part of Liguori Publication’s Saints and Me collection, which is a growing collection of small paperback books about saints for kids age 4-9.  The text in this book moves extremely quickly, and there are a plentiful number of pictures, so this book actually works well for age 2 and up.  The book introduces the Archangels Michael, Raphael, and Gabriel, then tells a few stories about St. Michael from the Bible.  For some reason, the archangels are all white with blonde hair.  There are also a few potentially scary images of demons.  Nonetheless, with simple language and images, this book works well for young children, so Seasonal Catholic still recommends it for today’s feast.
