The Beginnings of Palabras a Dios
Cover design: Kristen Rebelo. Cover photo: Christine Stoddard.
Palabras a Dios is book of Catholic poems written by school children in Piura, Peru, as well as teen girls at the orphanage Hogar del Redentor, which suffered a fire last month. The students wrote these poems in September 2013 during workshops led by missionaries from Commissioned by Christ. Palabras a Dios will feature English and Spanish translations of the poems, plus essays by missionaries and parish staff. It will be published as a fundraiser for Hogar Madre del Redentor's ongoing needs, from food to clothes to bedding and more. The book, which is currently still in the production stage, is being coordinated by Quail Bell Press & Productions. It is on track for being published by early 2015.
Here are some of the poems that will be featured in the book:
