Devotional Collection


Devotional Collection


The Devotional Literature Collection consists of some 300 volumes of works of Catholic devotion intended primarily for the use of lay people. Some were designed for the use of the faithful during Mass; these include prayers often with a Eucharistic theme which could be recited while the priest said Mass in Latin. Others were for private use at home; these include numerous novenas and other prayers especially to the saints. The majority of items in the collection were published between 1850 and 1950. The collection includes manuals for a number of sodalities, confraternities, and other pious societies, as well as works for parish missions.
