This is the story of Jack Giorgio,

who dreamed of becoming a superhero....

With bright and moving illustrations and a fun, rhyming story, your child will love the spirited Jack Giorgio and his quest to find heroes . . . and become one himself. 

This beautiful tale shares a touching father-son relationship and emphasizes the heroic nature of the Catholic priesthood, as well as introduces young readers to a host of holy saints and inspires a love for the Blessed Eucharist. 

Following on the heels of the beloved Lily Lolek: Future Saint, this picture book will be enjoyed by both boys and girls alike for years to come!

    My children love this book. The illustrations are fun part comic book-ish. Beautiful message about the priesthood and the sacrifice of the mass.

    Traditional and Captivating

    I am so happy I got this one. It has traditional elements and the colors, the artwork, the semi-comic style is amazing! It even inspires me as mom to hope in their vocations.

    Love It!

    Thank you to @tan_books for the copy of Jack Giorgio Future Priest. I love this book and the message to young children, especially boys. Jack Giorgio loves super heroes, in fact he wants to be a super hero. His dad tells him about a super hero he sees each Sunday. This superhero is a priest and he fights off demons too. Jack is immediately in awe the next time he is at Mass and has a whole new view of what is taking place. (Scroll through the photos for a peek inside.) Children have an incredible sense of wonder and this book is a great way to introduce them or get them interested in what is taking place during the Mass. It also served as a beautiful reminder to me about beautiful the Mass is and everything that is taking place before my very eyes every week. I highly recommend this book for children. The story and illustrations are fantastic.

    Super heroes come in different ways.

    Even though Jack wanted to be a super hero, it was his friend who tried to deter Jack from his idea. But his father showed him that there are heroes right in front of us who gave their lives for what they believe.

    Beautiful book!

    I bought this without being able to see inside or read reviews. I was worried this would be some fluffy novus ordo book, and was buying it ready to return it if necessary. But its beautiful illustrations of the Mass of the Ages ( or at least the novus ordo ad orientium) and traditional vestments on the priest make it a very agreeable purchase for my 2 littlest guys.
