To say that the Catholic church is rich with symbolism would be an understatement. One step into the sanctuary of any Catholic church immediately surrounds the faithful with the earthly treasures that point us to heaven. Andrea Zachman tours the church, stopping to note each item, revealing its sacred value. As she ponders over each item, she provides historical facts, purpose and symbolism. Full-color, high resolution images are provided for each item, along with quotes from Scripture and from Church Fathers. Read The Sacred that Surrounds Us and find yourself a step closer to heaven every time you attend the Mass. This book is a valuable source of inspiration for any reader and source of information for any catechist, faith formation director, teacher or parent.
