By Leslie Donovan

Illustrated by Fr. Jerome Sanderson


Aimed at upper elementary grades and even adults, this is the story of a young girl in present-day Moscow--Seraphima--who teaches her father, a priest, to set aside his fear and grief in order to serve Christ present in the poor. The central theme is the dignity of the human person created in the image of God. In the words of the author, "At last, Fr. Nikolai understood that his daughter had shown him another sort of icon. Serafima's icons were written not in egg tempera, but in flesh and blood. In the poor of Moscow, she saw the face of Christ Himself."
