Over 50 years before three shepherd children in Fatima saw the beautiful and mysterious Lady, two other children beheld the same Lady heartbroken and in tears. Maximin and Melanie might not be as well-known as Lucia, Jacinta, or Francisco, but their message is no less powerful or relevant now.
Mary Fabyan Windeatt was known as the “Storyteller of the Saints” in the 50s and 60s. Her renditions of the lives of the saints and important events in Catholic history are some of the best-known Catholic books for children. Your child will love her engaging style, and you will love the faith-filled message and lessons in virtue!
In this vividly detailed and engaging account, Mary Fabyan Windeatt reveals the depth of the Blessed Virgin’s pain over the sins of ungrateful men, as well as the perfect mother’s love that caused her to appear to these holy children. Mary’s message and the story of La Salette will be familiar to anyone who knows the story of Fatima, reminding us that prayer, hope, and penance will always be the answer to the emptiness of sin.
Ideal for all children, whether read by them or aloud to them, the lessons of this book are applicable and relatable to all ages. If your child is enrolled in TAN Academy, this book is an excellent option for easy-reading literature for Kindergarten through 3rd Grade.
