The Catholic Church is filled with signs and symbols which point to deeper, more profound mysteries. In  this beautifully illustrated book, author Amy Welborn, explains and expounds upon the many signs and symbols we find in our Church, its Saints, the Liturgical Seasons, the Sacraments and the Bible. With lovely, full-colored illustrations and simply written explanations for each sign and symbol, this book will appeal to children and adults alike. It is not only a lovely reference book but an engaging picture book as well. This book will inspire all who read it to see beyond the signs into the mystery that is God's plan of love for each of us. (A Catholic Mom in Hawaii)
