King of the Shattered Glass
King of the Shattered Glass is a beautifully illustrated parable of mercy. This tale of God’s Mercy and Forgiveness is a perfect instrument for teaching the sacrament of Reconciliation. For young families, catechists, or elementary school teachers it is a tool to share the transforming power of God’s healing love.
We follow Marguerite through the stages of the heart that eventually leads to true contrition based on love. The presentation of these concepts is done in a period setting, using the medieval background of glassblowers, and life in a medieval castle.
Great preparation for the Sacrament of Reconciliation

Will You Come to Mass?
Will you Come to Masss a delightful story based on the parable of the Invitation to the Great Banquet in Lk 14:15-24, church bells, like angel voices, invite all the characters, to join in the weekly celebration — but one by one they each give some excuse! The sloth is too sleepy, the robin is too busy cleaning, the horse is working, and the monkeys have a game to play. But the little lamb is different. When he hears the bells, he feels a sparkle and says, “I want to go! Just lead me!” When the church door opens, can you find the little lamb? He is in the arms of the Good Shepherd.
