In addition to the new Bible Stories for Baby Hands, another book which will be making its way into one of our children’s Easter Baskets this year is author Maura Roan McKeegan’s recently published picture book Where is Jesus Hidden?
Jesus has a face like yours,
With eyes and nose and ears—
But sometimes we can’t see Him
Even though He’s very near.
Sometimes He is hidden,
Or He’s wearing a disguise,
But we can learn to find Him
If our hearts will help our eyes.
“In Where is Jesus Hidden?, award-winning author Maura Roan McKeegan points to the many places and ways Jesus can be found. With a series of clues from Scripture to guide them, young children will learn that if they search for Jesus, he is never far.”
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.
