Item description for My Path to Heaven: A Young Person's Guide to the Faith by Geoffrey Bliss, Fr Geoffrey Bliss & Caryll Houselander...
Overview Based on the traditional Ignatius retreat (trusted by Catholics for centuries) and adapted for children, this clear, simple, thoughtful presentation of the Faith is invaluable for parents seeking to form their children in holiness. My Path to Heaven covers such essentials of the Faith as God's will, angels, Heaven and Hell, the Fall of man, and the Holy Trinity, the Incarnation, the Nativity, the Passion, salvation, the sacrements, faith, hope, love, and contrition, and it teaches children the relevance of these truths in their lives and in the decisions they make.
Publishers Description This "retreat-in-a-book" helps children ponder the truths of the Faith and calls them to live lives of holiness in accordance with those truths. It's best for children ages 9 to 12, but good for younger children, too.

Fabulous gift to start a child on the path to meditation Mar 28, 2007
This Ignatian-retreat-in-a-book is so beautiful. I gave it to my daughter to use as an in-home "silent" retreat. For the three days prior to her First Holy Communion, she did 4 half-hour segments a day with a chapter each time, with other prayers throughout the day, like the Rosary, stations, etc. It made her feel very grown up to do her own retreat, and the silence and gentle introduction to prayer was such a wonderful experience, and preparation for receiving the One she loves a few days later.
Excellent content rich book to help children grow in faith Jan 25, 2000
This book is rich in meticulous, thought-provoking illustrations coupled with in-depth reflexions to help children grow in understanding and living their Catholic faith. I hope all the children in my parish read it with their parents and godparents!
