Historical Context

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.

A Collect (from the Solemnity of Saint Joseph)


V. The Lord be with you.
R. And with thy spirit.
Let us pray.
May the merits of Your most holy Mother’s spouse help us, we beseech You, O Lord, that through his intercession we may receive what we cannot obtain by our own efforts.
Who livest and reignest with God the Father, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, God, world without end.
R. Amen


V. Dóminus vobíscum.
R. Et cum spíritu tuo.
Sanctíssimæ Genetrícis tuæ Sponsi, quǽsumus, Dómine, méritis adiuvémur: ut, quod possibílitas nostra non óbtinet, eius nobis intercessióne donétur:
Qui vivis et regnas cum Deo Patre, in unitáte Spíritus Sancti, Deus, per ómnia sǽcula sæculórum.
R. Amen.
