Both books are written by my good friend and long-time collaborator in the fight against abortion Anthony DeStefano.  Anthony is also our fulltime Vice-Chairman here at Priests for Life.  The titles of his two newest books are: Joseph’s Donkey and The Beggar and the Bluebird.  As you know, Anthony is a gifted writer who has authored dozens of books for both adults and children. 

In Joseph’s Donkey Anthony uses the character of Joseph’s donkey to make children aware of the heroic character of St. Joseph himself.  Just like St. Joseph the donkey is humble.  He submits to whatever Joseph tells him to do.  In that sense, the donkey personifies St. Joseph.  For when Joseph learned that Mary was pregnant, rather than “put her away,” as he was entitled to do according to law, Joseph listened to God’s angel and cherished the life of the unborn baby growing inside Mary’s womb. 

We always must remember that when the Almighty King of the Universe came to the Earth in the person of Jesus Christ—who was fully God and fully Man—he chose to do so first as an unborn child! It’s so important to teach children this incredible pro-life fact. It’s also essential for children to learn the importance of “dying to self” so that they can live for God—especially when it comes to protecting the unborn in the face of persecution from our secular, pro-abortion society.

Anthony’s other book – The Beggar and the Bluebird – is a Christian fairy tale that packs a powerful message of loving service to children.  In a nutshell, the bluebird needs to fly south as winter approaches.  But a street beggar keeps asking him to do small acts of kindness for others in need.  The bird does as he’s asked but ends up getting caught in a severe winter storm. 

I won’t spoil the ending for you, but I will tell you that this beautiful story teaches children about Works of Mercy, which require sacrifice. Anthony uses the bluebird as a symbol of Jesus Christ, who sacrificed His Life for us so that we can have eternal life in heaven. This is a book that shows children that our God is a God of LIFE!  That no matter what sacrifices we are called to make, the end of the human story is life and not death.  And that’s a lesson that will empower children to give of themselves for the sake of the unborn.
