by Fr. Jeremy Davis, illustrated by Luke Garrow

In a remote canyon, Saint Martin’s monks seek the Lord with all their hearts. Among them is the Cellarer, whose not-so-secret love of celery helps him remember what it means to be a monk. When misfortune strikes, his friendship with the Sower lifts these spiritual brothers above momentary hardship to find joy in God.

Written in exuberant verse, this endearing and whimsical tale hides a wealth of meaning. Smile at its rhymes, bounce to its rhythm, and rejoice in the blessings of Christian brotherhood.
