Excerpt from Minute Men Catholaganda: Booklet No. 12
So you do not know just how to go about things! Well, then, I have decided to send you once each month a paper, which I want you to read several times during the weeks which must ensue before the next instalment can come to you. Study each paper hard, learn it as if you had to know it for an examination upon which your whole career in life must depend. As a matter of fact, your whole career in life - ih eternal life - will depend upon the things placed before you during this course of instruction.
From the very beginning, too, I want you to keep in mind that everything mentioned in this course is absolutely true and real. It is not a fairy tale. It is not mere romance. God Himself bent down to tell these truths to man, and death will thrust us into their midst in all their reality. It would be dreadful, wouldn't it, if we were to have no inward life, no privacy with God; if death and God were to be to us unwelcome surprises. There is a huge invisible world. We are to be some day part of it. It touches us already. We may fall through into it at any moment. There's no need to be panic-stricken. There is need to be ready. And one of the best means of being ready is to learn and know our Catholic Doctrine.
You, dear Man, above all, I wish to understand and know the gift God is holding out to you, because, by the very circumstances of your life, you cannot but be an apostle. You see, we do not love what we do not know, and I want you so to love your religion that when people mention the subject, they will see at once that you are a Catholic, and also that you are proud of it, as of the greatest possession you have. Mean time, if the principles mentioned during this course enter into your daily life, inﬂuencing it and making it holy, God will love you as only He Himself can love, and that's all that really counts.
