Hear the story of St. Imelda—the patroness of First Communicants—as given from the mouth of “The Storyteller of the Saints!”
Blessed Imelda wanted nothing more than to receive Our Lord in the Eucharist, but her parents and priest were hesitant because she was so young. However, feeling the call of God in her young soul, Imelda persisted in her desire. The holiness, dedication, and youthfulness of Blessed Imelda make her a perfect example for our children. From her, they will learn what it means to adore Our Lord and offer Him everything they have in order to become saints.
Mary Fabyan Windeatt, known as the “Storyteller of the Saints”, wrote 20 works on the saints in the mid 20th century. Windeatt’s intention and style retells the lives of the saints in a historically-rooted and creative manner that makes the saints more personable and relatable, serving as inspiration and models for children upon hearing these wonderful stories. Her beautiful rendition of the story of Blessed Imelda will inspire in your children a great love of the Eucharist.
