Contains all the stories found in the Appendix of the large two-volume work entitled The Catechist As the author has stated in his Preface to the original edition of The Catechist, it is not presumed that these examples are to be read to those who are being instructed-though in most cases they may be-but preferably they are to be retold to the students by the instructor. For this reason the author has greatly abbreviated them, with the understanding that the instructor, as the occasion may require, will adapt the stories to the level of the students. THE NOBLEMAN AND THE CATECHISM.-A distinguished nobleman had gone to a religious house to make a retreat, and felt no little surprise at being presented with a Catechism to read . “What?" he said, "a Catechism! are you setting me down again to my ABC?" But on the Superior proposing him some simple questions on religion, the nobleman was quite unable to give satisfactory answers. "Know then," said the Superior, "that among' persons in the world, there are very few really instructed in their religion. This little book, which you seem to undervalue, is an abridgment of theology: even those who have learned it when young, should read it, in advanced years, that they may not forget what it contains." He ever afterwards carried a Catechism with him
