Bargain Priced Books :: Manners in God’s House

by | Aug 9, 2017 | Bargain Books, Picture Books | 3 comments

While I was putting together my book sale post for this year I ran across another bargain priced book over at Amazon and finally have a minute to share the link with you all! According to Amazon, once upon a time we paid $26.95 for our copy of this sweet book: Manners in God’s House: First Prayers and First Missal… That was back when it was published by Neumann Press before it was acquired by TAN Books. Right now it’s only $11.54 over at Amazon!!!

Manners in God’s House is a combined edition of three books, originally issued in 1950, includes:

  • Let’s Pray: First Prayers for Little Catholics: provides phrase by phrase, in-depth explanations of the Sign of the Cross, Our Father, Hail Mary, and more, encouraging young readers to connect deeply with these universal prayers.
  • Good Manners in God’s House: uses beautiful full-color pictures to show how to act in church, from the moment you enter and cross yourself with holy water until you pray thanksgiving after Mass. It also teaches children interior prayer and meditation, to bring their soul closer to God before Mass.
  • My Little Missal in Pictures: illustrates each stage of the Mass; its captions help children appreciate the meaning of each part of the Mass, from start to finish. Its attention-grabbing comparisons between the Mass and the Scripture provide inspiration for even your smallest missal-carrier.

I usually just pull it off the shelf and read it to our little ones, but every once in awhile I will incorporate it into a lesson as pictured in our Blessed Trinity Shamrock “Glory Be” Prayer Poster Catechism Craft. It is such a sweet book and I love all the illustrations!

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.
