“In the name of my child and of my family: I believe, I believe in Your love... I adore, I adore Your Heart, O Jesus!”
“Remember Jesus, Your heavenly rest in Mary’s arms, while her maternal heart grieved in secret. By that grief, to repay her solicitude and tenderness, save my child likewise entrusted to the arms of Mary. 41 page booklet. ”
By Mgr. De Segur.
This book is a brief primer to introduce young minds to the important but often difficult to explain concept of prayer. In easily understood passages, Msgr. De Segur enlightens us on what it means to pray, why we must pray, how we must pray, and when we must pray. Further, here are made the important distinctions between traditional prayers and the intimate relationship with the Creator that must be fostered by children early in life to ensure a lasting faith in our Lord Jesus Christ.

The purpose of this book has been to spare trouble for the faithful by providing them with an exact and authentic list or catalogue of some spiritual works and prayers to which is attached a Plenary Indulgence that may be gained once or oftener each month, so that by the fulfilment of what is prescribed, one may gain every day of each month one or more Plenary Indulgences. Presented is only those Plenary Indulgences which may be gained one or more times each month, prescinding entirely from all other Plenary Indulgences which may be gained on other occasions, e.g., on certain immovable feasts, such as Christmas or the Immaculate Conception, or on movable feasts, such as Easter, and Pentecost.

Thoughts of Many Hearts Together with Reflections on the Life and Virtues of St. Teresa of the Child Jesus Besides Mass and Novena Prayers in Honor of the Little Flower and Communion Devotions.
Our habitual thoughts make us what we are. As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he. Sooner or later a man’s habitual thoughts come out in his life and character. What his thoughts are determines what he will become.
The sayings of saints, and of wise and holy men and women, if read day by day, with prayerful reflection, will cheer us and sustain us in the conflicts with the enemies of our salvation, will help us to do what is right, to press onward and upward, valiantly and persistently toward the goal of perfection.

The words of Father Mateo, even in cold print, will stir the affections to a more ardent love for the Sacred Heart of Jesus in the Most Blessed Sacrament. This book was not written for pious souls only. Let the lukewarm, the indifferent, even the unbeliever give it a reading. Who can estimate the real worth of the silent hours before the Tabernacle in which devout souls with Jesus seek true peace for all the world? Father Mateo's Apostolate is the answer to the tragedies of the times. It almost seems that these things are permitted to draw devout souls closer to Jesus who will hold up before this sin-stained, troubled world the Scourged, Thorn-crowned, Bleeding Savior, and in pious triumph cry out: "Behold your King!". In this book are offered twenty-one different Holy Hours as a token of love and reparation to the most Sacred Heart of Jesus, the King enthroned in very many Catholic homes, and the Adorable Friend of parents and children. The Holy Hours include one for each month, one to start the New Year, Holy Hour for the intimate family and social reign of the Sacred Heart, Holy Hour to enlighten and comfort souls who suffer, etc.
A Spiritual Treasury. Drawn from Sacred Scripture, the Liturgies, the Writings of the Saint, and Other Sources.
Rt. Rev. Msgr. John K. Ryan, Ph.D.
This collection of prayers has been made for a special purpose. It is to gather into a single volume certain prayers that are commonly used each day or upon stated occasions by priests, religious, and devout lay people, together with other prayers that are adapted to particular times and special needs. To this end, the Latin original of the Church’s official preparation for Mass and thanksgiving after Mass and a translation of them have been included. In addition, some of the great prayers found in the eastern liturgies and certain prayers taken from the western spiritual tradition have been arranged as further devotions for Mass and Communion.

Meditations By Mother Clare Fey.
The Congregation of the Sisters of the Poor Child Jesus has gathered from the writings of their Foundress a number of short meditations on the sufferings of the Redeemer, which are distinguished not only by rare depth of thought, but still more by the warmth of love with which a holy soul, endowed with divine grace, has submerged herself in the great work of redemption by the Crucified.

Pious Exercises Which May Lead Towards Devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus
From the Preface:
The one aim of this little book is to furnish, for each day of the Month of June, some pious exercises which may lead towards devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. If, therefore, its necessary brevity has not proved too great an obstacle to clearness, the hope is cherished that every one who reads will be able to understand what is herein laid down.
His Holiness, Pope Pius XI, by a decree of the Sacred Penitentiary, March 1, 1933, granted to all the faithful who, during the month of June, publicly assisted at the exercises in honor of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus:
An indulgence of ten years, once a day.
A plenary indulgence, provided they have taken part in the same exercises at least ten times, and have gone to confession, received Holy Communion, and prayed for the intention of the Supreme Pontiff.
