by Linda J. Lockhart
This charming poem tells the story of the little angel who watches the Baby Jesus grow into a man and who struggles to understand the basic message of Christ. He watches the Passion unfold with horror and concern, but finally comes to the answer that we must all seek to submit to Godís will and emulate Christ rather than seeking worldly solutions.
Written from the perspective of a child, A Little Angel Dressed in Red puts the young reader in the position of the little angel to learn Christís message. Read this poem with the children you love and you will all be inspired to grown in the faith.
