Collection Spotlight: Catholic Brochures

This collection of ecclesiastical publications covers questions and answers about a wide range of topics for curious Catholics, dating throughout the 40′s, 50′s, 60′s, and 70′s. Consisting mostly of works from Liguori Publications and its affiliates, the brochures guide young Catholics through a myriad of everyday dilemmas and situations such that they may adhere strongly to their faith throughout each decision they make.

Of course, today these pamphlets are more likely to inspire a chuckle than anything else…

These pamphlets are prime examples of ideas aging, shall we say…ungracefully.

To see these silly and sometimes even outrageous pamphlets for yourself, come and visit the Loyola University Special Collections and Archives, located on the third floor of the Monroe Library!
