The King of the Golden City: An Allegory for Children
Mother Mary Loyola

The King of the Golden City is a fascinating tale which breathes into the heart of the child a deep understanding of Holy Communion while fostering a profound love for Our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament.

Originally published in 1921, this classic tale has long been a favorite of young and old. This quality gift edition features 8 full-color paintings which bring the story to life for young readers. A perfect book for preparing and celebrating a child's First Holy Communion!

This book was originally written for a young child who asked Mother Loyola what she must do to prepare for her First Holy Communion. The child asked for a story with hidden messages. 120 pgs. 6"x9" Softcover. 8 full color paintings.

“We used The King of the Golden City by Mother Mary Loyola with sacrament preparation for our son, Joseph, this past March. Joseph, who loves to read and be read to, has never been so enthralled with a book before. He very eagerly waited to hear my husband or I read about Dilecta's adventures in the Land of Exile and took comfort in the discussions we shared regarding the parallels to our own lives. Even after finishing the book, Joseph often remarks about sometimes sensing one of Malignus' tricky schemes, or hearing his "Prince Guardian" tell him what to do. The King of the Golden City should be required reading for all children AND adults.”

The King of the Golden City is possibly your best kept secret! While reading it in preparation for our children's First Communion, the whole family gained something from it! We grew in Faith together, making the sacrament so very special for all of us! I've convinced five friends to order one, too! Thank you! Please don't ever take this out of your catalog - it a a true Catholic jewel!!!!!”
