You may never have been fond of pigeons in the past, but after reading My Pigeon Heart, you will look at pigeons in an entirely different light.
Meet Midgie, a small orphaned white pigeon. She lives in a big city on a very “special” building – a beautiful Cathedral!
Her favorite resting spot is on a ledge next to a stained-glass window, where she can hear the Cathedral Choir sing beautiful hymns and songs about God and Jesus.
She describes her hard life in the big city, always searching for food and being hungry. Although Sister Margaret Teresa, a kind Cathedral Nun, sometimes supplies the pigeons with biscuit crumbs.
Midgie believes that God and His Son, Jesus, live inside the Cathedral. She waits for them to come outside. They never do, so she believes they must have moved. Taking the advice of a song she'd heard -- “Seek Jesus and you shall find Him,” she begins her journey to the country to “seek and find Jesus.”
Midgie decides it is her responsibility to tell everyone she meets about Jesus and how they can have eternal life! She acts as a little disciple of Jesus. Midgie learned everything she knows from hymns she heard on the Cathedral ledge.
Join Midgie and meet her many converts along the way -- like Mr. Big Bull.
Experience Midgie's many discoveries, like a home filled with bird feeders, wild birds and animals. While there, Midgie is attacked by an angry hawk!
Share in her most precious encounter with Mary, the Mother of Jesus, who teaches Midgie about God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit.
Come with a little innocent pigeon -- Midgie, on her journey to seek and find Jesus, and you, too, will draw closer to Him!
