Overview

"I am Eve, the first woman God made. I have come to tell you about the creation of the world and what happened in Eden." - So begins one of the many exciting lessons in this surprising adventure catechism - lessons taught by Abraham, St. Patrick, St. Cecilia, and, of course, Eve, the mother of all mankind.

Eve tells young Cecilia and Michael how the world was made and how the Devil deceived her. She describes the sorrowful events that followed. Abraham picks up the story, speaking of his own life, of Moses, and of the savior God promised the Jews. Between catechism lessons taught by saints, the children travel back in time to witness persecuted Catholics risking their lives to attend furtive Masses in Roman days, in Reformation England, and in the Soviet Union just a few decades ago.

Through words and witnessing, deeds and doctrine, adventurous Michael and Cecilia learn the central truths of our Catholic Faith and discover how important they are, even today. 288 pages; ages 9-12; paperback.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Wonderful adventure catechism  Sep 9, 2008
Sophia Institute Press is to be commended for bringing this wonderful "adventure catechism" back into print. "St. Patrick's Summer" is the story of Michael and Cecilia, two elementary school-aged children in England who are taken on a guided tour of the Catholic faith by various figures from salvation history, e.g., St. Patrick, Eve, Abraham.

Doctrinal points are woven into the story's narrative and presented in a clear, orthodox fashion. Especially useful are the many asides and explanations. How our eternal God sees time, for example, is likened to how an airplane pilot sees an entire river from thousands of feet above the ground. Our vantage point is correspondingly narrower since we, unlike God, exist in the "river" of time.

The book was written in the 1950s, so the chapters on the Mass describe the Roman rite as it existed before Vatican II. This is especially useful to us, as we intend to participate in the "extraordinary form" on occasion. That said, the theology of the liturgy presented here would benefit any Catholic Mass-goer.

We've gone through Baltimore Catechism I as a family several times, and are using this book as something of a refresher for family reading hour. Our children range in ages from 2 to 12, and this book seems to be ideal for those 8 and up. If you are interested in supplementing a standard catechism or "mixing things up" with a new resource, this is your book. Highly recommended.
