I love incorporating our beautiful Catholic Faith in the gifts that I give, including gifts for my husband. One year I gave him a beautiful crucifix for our bedroom and another year I found the Antique Vintage French Crucifix at a local antique store for him. The two-tone St. Benedict Crucifix that is in our “new” (hard to believe it’s been nearly four years since we began our remodel/addition!) addition was another gift I purchased for him. Last year on Father’s Day I was so excited to give him a copy of The Catechism in Pictures which I had ordered during the Adoremus Books annual Easter sale! I mentioned it last December but wanted to share a few more pictures with you all.
This book is gorgeous!
