My Forty Day Blessing Book

Christina Kyriacou

Designed to be presented to parents at the 40-day blessing of their infant, this attractive book tells the story of how Jesus was also brought to the Temple for blessing forty days after His birth. The story is told through 18 colorful iconographic illustrations by Bonnie Gillis. Included are a page listing the names of the parents, the child, the church, the city, the date of the blessing; a place for the signature of the priest; a Memento Page for a photo of the blessing; the priest's prayer; a Parent's Prayer, and two brief articles on the meaning of the blessing. (12.7 x 20 cm; Pages: 48)
