Wondering if anyone can point me in the direction of some good books for kids that explain the Divine Liturgy. There are zillions of illustrated children’s missals available for the Latin Rite and I’m curious to find such a thing for the Divine Liturgy. Anyone know of anything?

Ideally, they’d have the details the Latin Rite books do in that there is a picture of the priest and a simple explanation of what he is doing at any point in the Liturgy.

Chooch Factor, welcome to the Byzantine Rite....

I taught cathechism for many years in our Ukrainian Catholic parish. By far, the best sourse I used concerning the Divine Liturgy was the book/ workbook called:

"Liturgical Catechism on the Sacrifice of the Divine Liturgy"

Put out by the - Byzantine- Slavonic Rite Catholic Exarchate of Pittsburgh

I found a copy on the "Goodreads" website for you to see........

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show...m-on-the-sacrifice-of-the-divine-liturgy


It is somewhat dated now, and may be out of print, but I still see it come up for sale on Ebay and used book sites.
It contains a few illustrations, it's in English with some Slavonic terms defined in English, a short explanation of each part of the Liturgy, and study guide questions. The preface also includes explanations about Eastern church architecture, the icon screen, vestments, etc.

It is probably geared to junior and senior high students, but I am sure that even younger people would benefit from it with parental assistance.

The book is excellent and should be required reading by older parishioners too...lol...


Hope this is helpful.

Thank you for the recommendation. I actually have a copy already (our parish “gift shop”/bookstore is well stocked). I agree that it is a great resource for older kids and adults. Any recommendations for younger children?

Not at the moment, sorry. Most of my religious teaching experience was with teens.
But, good luck to you, I am sure what you need is out there somewhere...........

There's a book called Guardian Angel Prayer Book. According to its introduction page, it is designed for kids ages 5 through 9. You can get a copy ($17.00) from Byzantine Church Supplies in Philadelphia: https://byzantinechurchsupplies.com/product/guardian-angel-prayer-book/.

There's another great book that I had as a kid but can't remember the title for the life of me. I'll go through my books to see if I can find it.

Thank you for the recommendation! There seem to be some other good books for children available here, too.
