9780940112179: El peso de una misa: Un relato de fe (Spanish Edition)

When a poor devout widow begs for a scrap of bread from a rich faithless baker, she promises to participate in the king’s wedding mass as payment for the baker’s generosity. The baker writes “One Mass” on a scrap of paper and places it on his scale to determine how much bread it is worth. To his and the entire town’s surprise, nothing in the shop, not even the gigantic wedding cakes made for the king, outweighs the simple piece of paper representing the true worth of a mass. Luminous old-world watercolor paintings grace the interior of the book to lend an air of solemnity and sacred beauty to the story. Cuando una pobre viuda devota ruega por unas migajas de pan a un acaudalado panadero desleal, promete su participación en la misa de la boda del rey como agradecimiento por la generosidad del panadero. El panadero escribe "Una misa" en un pedazo de papel y lo pone en la balanza para determinar su valor en pan. Para sorpresa suya y de todo el pueblo, nada en el negocio, ni siquiera el gigantesco pastel de bodas hecho para el rey tiene más valor que un simple pedazo de papel que representa el valor de una misa. Luminosas acuarelas del viejo mundo dan gracia al interior del libro brindan un aire de solemnidad y sagrada belleza a la historia.
