The story is set in modern day and outlines the reactions the children received from their priest, their youth minister, their parents, their friends and then the community at large. As the story unfolds, the children do not waver in their account of what happened. In fact, they are calm and filled with peace. Not the rest of them. Major flooding of emotions and reactions wreak havoc in their families, within the church and community. It's Fr. Ignatius' job to figure this out and bring peace and healing to his church even though he himself, doesn't know what to believe. Without giving the ending away, let's just say, he rises to the occasion and does as he was called to do!
This book addresses questions of faith and obedience. Of stepping out of one's comfort zone to do the Will of God no matter the cost. Believing in something bigger than oneself. It made me think, what would I do if I witnessed an Apparition of Jesus?
