St. Alphonsus writes: "a single bad book will be sufficient to cause the destruction of a monastery." Pope Pius XII wrote in 1947 at the beatification of Blessed Maria Goretti: "There rises to Our lips the cry of the Saviour: 'Woe to the world because of scandals!' (Matthew 18:7). Woe to those who consciously and deliberately spread corruption-in novels, newspapers, magazines, theaters, films, in a world of immodesty!" We at St. Pius X Press are calling for a crusade of good books. We want to restore 1,000 old Catholic books to the market. We ask for your assistance and prayers.

Today's young people are more intelligent, informed, and inquisitive than ever before. They are often inclined to question things previous generations have taken for granted -- things such as religion.This book gives young Catholics a deeper appreciation of their faith and offers understanding and encouragement in dealing with faith-related doubts and setbacks. With his usual reader-friendly, humorous approach, popular author Jim Auer cuts through all of the downtalking, finger-pointing, and guilt-tripping young people often associate with religion to provide concrete reasons for living a Catholic life.

The Latin poetry of the Christian Church presents a tempting field for the exercise of scholarship and research. The relation in which it stands on the one hand to the classic poetry of Greece and Italy, and on the other to the Liturgies of the Eastern Church, the placing of accent in the room of quantity, and the rise and growth of rhyme-these and such-like matters will always prove attractive to experts and specialists. They are, however, quite beyond the scope of this brief paper. Those who wish to make an exhaustive study of a subject which has many sides and a copious literature, would do well to betake themselves to such standard works as are noted below. The general reader may find something to profit and to interest him in the following general survey.
