About this item

Age Range: 9 and up

For your children:

An old-fashioned "Retreat-in-a-Book" . . . to help them ponder the truths of the Faith and live lives of holiness in accordance with those truths

Based on the traditional St. 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, the Holy Trinity, the Incarnation, the Nativity, the Passion, salvation, the sacraments, faith, hope, love, and contrition, and it teaches children the relevance of these truths in their lives and in the decisions they make.

This unique book is:

Practical: it focuses on proper devotion and right action, not feelings

Serious: it acknowledges and speaks to the deep seriousness that attentive parents know lies in the hearts of even the very youngest children

Substantial: it considers central points of the Faith and addresses the issues that face every Christian, even the youngest

Prayerful: by speaking reverently of holy things, it inspires children to develop in devotion to Jesus, Mary, and the saints

Scriptural: chapters include numerous Scripture references

Among the topics:

  • Three ways to help your child make good choices
  • The victory promised to those who try to be holy
  • Free will: a great gift (and a great responsibility)
  • God's overwhelming mercy and patience
  • Christ's plan to train children to follow Him
  • God's generosity: why He deserves all our love
  • Satan: how your child can avoid the Devil's traps
  • Heaven: why now is the time to begin seeking it

I love this book. It has interesting pictures which you can look at for the tiny details. The explanations are very good and thought-provoking. Everything in this book follows the teachings of the Church. Reading this book is like going on a mini retreat. Even adults can benefit from this amazing book.

A Gem for Parents!
This book is great for parents wishing to introduce their children to Ignatian Spirituality. Its pictures are detailed black and white and are explained well. There are yes or no questions at the end. Target age group is children between 9 and 12. I believe you can adapt them to younger ages by explaining the pictures yourself. As for kids over 12, it is a great primer for or supplement to Confirmation classes. I would highly recommend this to any parent striving to instill virtues in their children.

Awesome book
We are slowly working through the book with our 11 year-old and 9 year-old. They appreciate it very much, as do we. It is based on the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius, and it provides them with an excellent way to view life and approach its joys, sorrows, and challenges. The visuals are very helpful.
