APARCEL of recently-published brochures from the Catholic Truth Society of Ireland brings, In the first place, a pamphlet which on account of its size and character has to be a fivepenny, not a twopenny. And well Worth fivepence it is, this full ceremonial, in Latin and English, for the consecration of a Bishop-elect. The booklet is the Joint work of the Rev. John Burke, Dean of University College, Dublin, and the Rev. Dr. John Ryan, S.J., of the same institution. In the social category among the twopenny batch is a useful pamphlet, The .Social Question and some Answers to it, by the Rev. Louis J. Stubbs. The remainder of the packet belongs fiftyfifty, to devotion and to biography. The Master's Touch., though a little book of tales, is based on the New Testament. Mr C. G. Mortimer, who needs no introduction to the CATHOLIC HERALD'S readers, contributes a pamphlet on Our Lady's Praises in the Middle Ages, an anthology of hymns. The biographies are of Jutia, a protegoe of Mother Barat and something of a mystery; and Two Lovers of the Field Afar, in which are associated St. Teresa of Lisieux and Blessed Theophane Venard.
The Irish C.T.S. sends also its Catholic Truth Quarterly, a magazine in which "Ask us a Question," is one of the strong features.
