A Christian's Birthday

by Darlyn Gomes-Hidalgo

Book Image Not Available Book Image Not Available
My book is about the symbols and significance of the sacrament of baptism according to the Catholic Church, however I am almost positive it is in accordance to most Christian teaching. It is a bilingual book in English and Spanish.
The book goes through the meaning of each symbol in the rite of Baptism. It begins with the purpose of baptism and its importance. Each drawing illustrates a symbol that is seen and used in the rite. The words in the book give a simple explanation to the symbol. The book is bilingual in English and Spanish.
