Blocks of Faith

Our story about a book with a whole new way to restore the sacred.


What do LEGO® bricks and the sacraments have in common? Well, they're both used to build things–toy structures and holiness, to be exact. They have different forms and instructions. They require time and commitment. They happen to comprise the contents of a new book by a young Catholic mother and  father of seven, and they're going to be featured in On Assignment Magazine in an upcoming story segment by StoryTel.

Like so many families, Mary and Kevin O'Neill had a love/hate relationship with these classic bricks. Their kids loved the toy and had  books illustrated with LEGO. But when a favorite Bible book illustrated with the toy turned out to have misguided teachings, Kevin and Mary decided to literally take matters into their own hands.

StoryTel's On Assignment Magazine program is investigating this unusual, developing story and looks forward to sharing the O'Neill story and their wonderful book with the world as soon as possible.
