Excerpt from The Hero of Heroes: A Life of Christ for Young People

I know a house Where, over the mantelpiece, is a print of Leonardo da Vinci's famous picture of the Last Supper, the picture now faded and defaced, on the wall of the refectory in the convent of S. Maria delle Grazie, at Milan.

In the house was a little boy of four, and no one had ever shown him the picture or said anything about it to him.

One day he suddenly said to his mother: There's a King in that picture.

What do you mean, John? Said his mother. There's a King in that picture, he repeated.

She picked him up in her arms and took him to the mantelpiece, and then he put his tiny finger on the figure of Jesus in the center of the picture.

Jesus is seated at the table, and has just said to the twelve apostles that one of them will betray him. He wears no Sign of kingship except the expression on his face. But that child had seen the King.

Now I hope the reader of this book, though a little child, will say: There's a King in that pic ture.

It is the history Of one who lived a lowly life of love and service, and died a shameful death.
