Ever wonder what your IQ is? Ever wonder what it means? Ever wonder what the spiritual problems flow from our IQ? Fr. Furfey devotes a whole section to a spiritual consideration of IQ, high and low and the temptations that flow from both. This book is an attempt to combine the traditional wisdom of the church with the results of the best modern experience. Although published in 1931, this is probably one of the best works on Catholicism and Psychiatry in print. Written simply to discuss the basic problems of the average layman from a spiritual as well as psychological viewpoint in simple terms anyone can understand. The battle between the flesh and spirit is exposed and the various responses from compromise, rationalization, phantasy formation, projection and even feelings of inferiority. Practical advice is given how to overcome our simple problems that will eliminate a need for a trip to the psychiatrist in most people. It is hoped all both clergy and lay will profit from the information presented in this work. 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.
