Author: Rev. Geoffrey Bliss, SJ. 96 pg. PB. Illustrated.

Based on the traditional St. Ignatius Retreat (trusted by Catholics for centuries) and adapted for children this clear, simple, thoughtful presentation of the Faith is invaluable for parents seeking to form their children in holiness.

My Path to Heaven covers such essentials of the Faith as God's will, angels, Heaven and Hell, the Fall of Man, the Holy Trinity, the Incarnation, the Nativity, the Passion, salvation, the sacraments, faith, hope, love and contrition — what's more, it teaches children the relevance of these truths in their lives and in the decisions they make!

Among the Topics:
  • Three ways to help your child make good choices
  • Christ's plan to train children to follow Him
  • God's generosity: why He deserves all our love
  • Heaven: why now is the time to begin seeking it
  • This remarkable book is:
  • Practical: it focuses on proper devotion and right action, not feelings
  • Serious: it acknowledges and speaks to the deep seriousness that attentive parents know lies in the hearts of even the very youngest children
  • Substantial: it considers central points of the Faith and addresses the issues that face every Christian, even the youngest
  • Prayerful: because it speaks reverently of holy things, My Path to Heaven inspires children to develop in devotion to Jesus, Mary, and the saints
  • Scriptural: chapters include numerous Scripture references
  • Captivating: pictures keep the attention of the most restless children, as they discover in them exciting details about the Faith
  • Instructional: chapters conclude with questions to help children review and remember what they've learned, and to help them choose to strive for holiness
  • My Path to Heaven is best for children ages 9 to 12, but beginning readers and even non-readers can also enjoy the rich illustrations.
