These are pages from Treasure Chest of Fun and Fact, which was a bi-monthly, school-year magazine by the Catechetical Guild Educational Society that ran from 1946 to 1972. Treasure Chest featured stories for Catholics that included religious subjects, American history, crossword puzzles, funny comics, and original fiction stories (including their longest running series, Chuck White). The magazine was only sold on a subscription basis to Catholic schools and was not featured on newsstands, which was the common way to sell comic magazines at the time.

Christians! to the Paschal Victim offer your thankful praises.
The Lamb the sheep redeemeth: Christ, who only is sinless, reconcileth sinners to the Father.
Death and life contended in that conflict stupendous: the Prince of Life, who died, deathless reigneth.
Speak, Mary, declaring what thou sawest wayfaring.
"The tomb of Christ who now liveth: and likewise the glory of the Risen.
Bright Angels attesting, the shroud and napkin resting.
Yea, Christ my hope is arisen: to Galilee He goeth before you."
We know that Christ is risen, henceforth ever living: Have mercy, Victor King, pardon giving. Amen. Alleluia.
