Watch Your Manners
Watch Your Manners
Watch Your Manners
by Anne C. Tracey

A very kindly priest used to excuse the mistakes in etiquette which he noted in children by saying, "Well, it's not so much the manners but the manner that counts." Many have perfected their manners but they cannot hide the hurried, indifferent manner of their greeting. Many never make a mistake in form but their manner lacks warm sympathy for others. With whom would you rather live, the man of perfect manners who really cares nothing for you, or the sincere friend who occasionally slips on a rule of manners? How can one learn to treat everyone--the rude, the noisy, the impolite, the irritating, as well as the pleasant person--how can we learn to treat every person with good manners, a kindly manner, yes, with love? The answer is known to you. The Catholic boy and girl know that they must love their fellow men because in them they see Christ. This is the true spirit of Catholic manners.

The Mass for Children
The Mass for Children is a beautiful explanation of the Traditional Catholic Latin Mass for children.

In this full color reprint, Father Kelly gives the scriptural and historical background for the parts of the Mass. For example, when the altar boy moves the Missal from the right side of the altar to the left, he is representing the shift from the old law (Jewish religion) to the new law (Christian religion). "The Jewish religion was meant to get people ready for Our Lord. When He came, he gave us our perfect religion," Father explains.

A great First Communion prep supplement, this book would be a great gift for any child who wants to understand and follow the Mass.

A Story of Father Jean Lamy
by Brother Roberto, C.S.C.

As a child, Jean Lamy, and his family did three things every evening: pray the Rosary, read a chapter from the ‘Imitation of Christ’ and read the life of the saint for the day from the ‘Lives of the Saints’. He was greatly devoted to Our Lady and carried a small statue of Her wherever he went. He worked hard and even though setbacks occurred he was able to enter the seminary at the age of twenty-three and commended his future work to the Blessed Virgin.

Reading this story can encourage us to follow in the footsteps of Father Jean Lamy by learning how to accept challenges no matter how difficult and how to live our lives so that we may receive the graces we need and to reach our true home in Heaven.

Commanding the respect even of his enemies, upon his death a Muslim historian acclaimed him a "miracle among the great miracles of the Almighty." The Cid is an example of what can be achieved through devotion to duty, prayer, and trust in God. 186pp'
