Into the Sea, Out of the Tomb: Jonah and Jesus {Sponsored Review & Giveaway}

“The New Testament lies hidden in the Old, 
and the Old is unveiled in the New.” 
– Saint Augustine (from title page of Into the Sea, Out of the Tomb)

In the same thread as the author’s first book in the “Old and New” series, which I was excited to add to our collection last Easter, comes the story of Jonah and Jesus, which I purchased for our children this Easter! This beautiful and colorfully illustrated book for children is a simple way for them to discover biblical typology.

Without having to endure a weighty lecture on this topic, children can easily flip through the pages of the “Old and New” series books and ignite a simple yet deep understanding of the Old Testament foundations prefiguring the New Testament covenant between God and man. 

It is refreshing to see an author realizes the importance of this finely woven thread in our salvation history. Absorbing this material as a child will assuredly provide them a deeper appreciation for the Faith and our place in salvation history.  As a parent my heartfelt thanks to Maura Roan McKeegan for enlightening our children’s minds to biblical typology.

Prayer of Mothers

Father in heaven, grant me the grace to appreciate the dignity which you have conferred on me. Let me realize that not even the Angels have been blessed with such a privilege—to share in your creative miracle and bring new Saints to heaven. Make me a good mother to all my children after the example of Mary, the Mother of your Son. Through the intercession of Jesus and Mary I ask your continued blessings on my family. Let us all be dedicated to your service on earth and attain the eternal happiness of your kingdom in heaven. Amen.

A Little About Me

Hi! I'm Jessica, a Roman Catholic wife and home educating mother to our nine children. I was home educated myself, along with my eleven younger siblings. I have a special devotion to St. Therese, through whom I have been given much help and many blessings--the beautiful "Shower of Roses" that she has sent my way! Here I will record a few of the blessings I treasure. Please remember that what you see here is just a little glimpse at our lives, so please say a prayer for us, as we continue to strive for holiness.
