Christmas is enchanting. And the heart of the Christmas Gospel story possesses the captivating magic to endlessly reproduce itself over the centuries in new stories and legends.

Moving and inspiring, these stories for the young and young at heart contain hidden insights into the rich and varied mystery of God enfleshed in our human reality. Little Orphan Angela deals with the power of childlike innocence, "Mikel, Son of the Magi" with the capacity of love to enlighten and "The Carol of the Candles" with what is essential in order to be a light to the world.
