Instructional Stories for Children.
By Rev. Wilfrid J. Diamond
Imprimatur 1941. 112 page book.
Preaching to children is not easy. It is indeed one of the finest of fine arts. The difficulties experienced in the preparation of the instruction for the children’s Mass will be less onerous for those who use Father Diamond’s sermons. How often busy priests go in search of just such a book as this one. We shall have no excuse now if we fail to give our children an interesting and inspiring instruction at their Sunday Mass.
It seems unnecessary to add that this volume will also be useful to religious and lay catechists in parochial schools and other centers of religious instruction.
God will use this little volume for His glory as little children learn to love our Lord from it.
May we suggest the use of this book be strengthened by the frequent repetition of the powerful prayer of St. Therese of the Child Jesus. “O Jesus, I beseech Thee to cast Thy glance upon a vast number of little souls: I entreat Thee to choose in this world a legion of little victims, worthy of Thy love.”
