Overview

THE contents of this volume appeared originally in The Catholic Transcript, of Hartford, Connecticut, in weekly installments, from February, 1901, to February, 1903. During the course of their publication, it became evident that the form of instruction adopted was appreciated by a large number of readers in varied conditions of life—this appreciation being evinced, among other ways, by a frequent and widespread demand for back-numbers of the publishing journal. The management finding itself unable to meet this demand, suggested the bringing out of the entire series in book-form; and thus, with very few corrections, we offer the "Briefs" to all desirous of a better acquaintance with Catholic Morals.

    A little hard getting used to the writer's style, but full of in

    A little hard getting used to the writer's style, but full of information useful for all christians. Expertly written and a very interesting read. Highly recommend, especially if you want to peel away the onion on the numerous types of "catholic morals" and understand the underpinnings of our relationship with God.

    Great

    One may find a beautifully done free epub of this book at booksshouldbefree dot comma. This is a great book which convicts the reader's spirit and makes her want to try harder to avoid sin an live a moral life. Should be on every Catholic bookshelf.
