A new faith-based board game created by a Spanish nun has become one of the most popular First Communion gifts in Spain this year.
Sister Maria Granados Molina created the new game, "The Joy of the Faith," which tests players' knowledge of Catholicism. The game's publisher said 2,000 copies have been made since the game went on sale a few months ago, and there are hopes to market it in the United States and Latin America.
Thirty-five year-old Sr. Molina was born in Granada and belongs to a Carmelite order in the city of Cuenca. She works as a catechist for the Diocese of Cuenca.
In an interview with CNA, Sr. Molina said she never imagined the game would become so popular. She made the first version of the game at home with her own printer and the help "of the sisters from my congregation in Cuenca."
