Explanation of the Epistles and the Gospels
For the Sundays, Holydays and Festivals Throughout the Ecclesiastical Year to which are added the Lives of Many Saints.
This book is divided into two parts, Part I contains, as the title suggests, the explanation of the epistles and gospels. Part II contains instruction on the veneration and invocation of Saints with explanations of the epistles and gospels proper to their feasts. It would be difficult to find a book more suitable for the laity, imparting fuller instruction in faith and morals, or giving more lucid explanations of the ceremonies which the Church employs throughout the Ecclesiastical year. It is no surprise that this Catholic treasure has been warmly recommended over time by many bishops and priests since it first appeared in 1880 to strengthen the Catholic faith, propagate true Christian morality and lead to a better comprehension of the Ecclesiastical year. The Epistle and Gospel for each Sunday or Holyday is fully explained, complete with scriptural references; finally, there is a short sermon that relates to the Gospel of the day. This large book is replete with inspirational line drawings.
