THE WEIGHT OF A MASS

A TALE OF FAITH

 
 


Couched in the language and look of a fairy tale,

and rich in solemn beauty, this tale of what happened when a destitute widow begs only

a crust of bread in return for offering the Royal Wedding Mass is based on a true miracle.



The eagerly-awaited companion volume

TAKE IT TO THE QUEEN,

is finally available!
