New issue of Catholic Documents'
THE Pontifical Court Club, continuing its new venture to bring the Holy Father's word into every Catholic home, presbytery and school, is about to issue its second collection of "Catholic
Documents," containing authoritative and special translations of recent pronouncements and decisions by the Pope. President of the Club is the
Apostolic Delegate, Archbishop Though it is not claimed that Godfrey.
"Catholic Documents " contains all manner of Papal addresses, from Encyclical Letters to five-minute talks which His Holiness gives when he receives small and large groups in special audience.
The first issue, for instance, began with a talk to the beekeepers of Italy. It included, too, an address to the Fiat workers of Turin, but also. of course, the allocution to the Sacred College at the urgentlysummoned Consistory a few days after the arrest of Cardinal Mindszenty, and otter pronouncements of topical and historic importance. The new issue is no less of special interest to the laity as well as the clergy. It includes, for instance, the Holy Father's recent address on the mission of the Christian family. another to employers and workers, and a third to the youth of Catholic Action.
Side by side with these are the Apostolic Letters on "The Year of the Great Return." and "The Year of the Great Pardon." these are official translations-they are made from the variety of languages in which the Holy Father speaks-Archbishop Godfrey recommends them to everyone as "a faithful interpretation of the mind of His Holiness."
Few copies of the first issue are available, but all who wish to have the second may obtain it by writing to Fr. Hugh Hunt, parish priest of New Malden (1 Montem Road, New Malden, Surrey), who has been appointed circulation manager.
