Item Description...
On the day of a royal wedding in a kingdom where everyone has grown careless in the practice of their Catholic faith, a poor widow helps reveal the true value of the Mass.

Publishers Description
When a poor devout widow begs for a scrap of bread from a rich faithless baker, she promises to participate in the king's wedding mass as payment for the baker's generosity. The baker writes "One Mass" on a scrap of paper and places it on his scale to determine how much bread it is worth. To his and the entire town's surprise, nothing in the shop, not even the gigantic wedding cakes made for the king, outweighs the simple piece of paper representing the true worth of a mass. Luminous old-world watercolor paintings grace the interior of the book and gold foil artwork lends an air of solemnity and sacred beauty to the story.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Beautiful  Apr 11, 2008
My children received this book as a gift, and our 5 and 3 year olds really enjoy the story. The illustrations are very well-done, and the story is beautiful.
"Outweighing" life's finer things  Jan 2, 2008
This well-written tale, reportedly based on a true story, demonstrates to young children how the Mass ought to "outweigh" life's supposedly finer things -- in this case the delicacies of a baker. As others have observed it is beautifully illustrated by Katalin Szegedi; her watercolor drawings help children develop an early appreciation for the three transcendentals: Truth, Goodness, and Beauty. The book takes about seven minutes to read, so it's perfect for reading to young children (7 and under.) "The Weight of a Mass" deserves the fine praise it has received here and elsewhere, and it makes one look forward to other titles by the publisher Gingerbread House. Highly recommended.
Beyond a Children's Book  Dec 6, 2007
This is more than just a children's book. It is something very special and beautifully illustrated that caters for the child that lurks inside all of us. The simple story touches not just on human faith but issues of the heart that will promise to bring a lump in your throat at the end of it. If you have young children, read it to them. If you don't, find a quiet moment and read it aloud to yourself. I promise you, it's really good for the soul. A wonderful gift this Christmas or any time.
Perfect Gift for a Godchild  Oct 23, 2007
I have ordered several copies of this book and given them as gifts, and I will order many more I am sure. It is a terrific First Communion gift, providing a very tangible example of the value of going to Mass, it is a message which resonates with parent and child alike.
Beautiful Book  Oct 5, 2007
This is a wonderful book about a folk tale regarding the Eucharist. Make sure you read the passage at the end, it is based upon a true story! My children love this book. It really helps them appreciate how important the Mass is.
