The Sacraments, by Fr. Demetrius Manousos
This book needs to be seen to be fully appreciated. Originally published by the Catechetical Guild in 1955 (Imprimatur Francis Cardinal Spellman), this is a "comic" book unlike any other. The Sacraments is a detailed, fully illustrated, step by step explanation of all seven sacraments.
The book presents the theology of the sacraments in a manner easily understood by children and yet is incredibly interesting and informative for adults as well. This should come as no surprise to those who have read The Seven Sacraments, another Angelus Press reprint by Fr. Manousos, who has the amazing ability to take solid theology and present it to children...without dumbing it down. He was truly a gifted writer.
This makes The Sacraments an excellent catechetical tool for all ages. All parts of the sacraments are explained: matter, form, minister, intention, Biblical basis, liturgical actions, including helpful suggestions for children to best prepare for the reception of the sacraments. Covers all seven Sacraments in an engrossing full color "comic"-style format. A perfect companion to Know Your Mass.
