“Weekly Readers were a condensed version of a daily city newspaper, geared toward elementary school pupils and quite popular in those days. The four-page periodical was published by the American Education Press Inc. of Columbus, Ohio. The weekly publication was provided to schools and distributed at no cost to the students. At Henry Johnson, the Readers were normally read and studied during our designated quiet time. They contained both national and international news, written in a style that made it interesting and more comprehensible to kids. http://noahbaileypower.prosportsmall.com/2016/10/05/trends-with-key-factors-of-job/Also, once a month, some of us elected to receive a “Classics Illustrated publication that was in the form of a comic book but featured adaptations of literary classics such as Mob Dick, Hamlet and Oliver Twist. They sold for 15 cents, which was a nickel more than the price of regular comics. Since our parents had to pay extra for them, some families opted not to participate.

In the broadest sense, as stated in the Catechism of the Catholic Church, “Love is the fundamental and innate vocation of every human being” CDC 2392. Caspian explains very clearly the different kinds of vocation to the monastic life, in his “collation, III: De tribes abrenuntiationibus”, iii, iv, v P.L., XLIX, 560-64.
