Has Nihil Obstat and Imprimatur; In the Footsteps of the Saints; 8vo; 92 pages; Giotto Bondone was born around 1266 in Italy. Young Giotto loved to draw pictures, and his parents fostered his talent by allowing him to study with a famous artist in Florence. Soon, Giotto became a master painter, and he was asked to paint beautiful pictures in many churches. Everyone, including the Pope, loved his paintings. At one point in this story, when he was praised by King Robert of Naples, Giotto said, "The gifts I have were only loaned to me by the good Lord that I might better serve Him and His Church." Reading this story can encourage us to follow in the footsteps of the great artist Giotto, who humbly used his talents for the greater glory of God and the Church. .
