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.

"The mystery of the mystic body of Christ is fulfilled, when all the members unite to offer themselves in and through him." Bossuet. On one occasion, when Saint Paul was in Corinth, Saint Timothy returned from a journey to Thessalonica.
The Christians in Thessalonica were well but they asked for more information about the second coming of Christ. 
Such letters of instruction and guidance were written by the Apostles in the early days of the church. They were read to the Christians just before the Holy Sacrifice was offered.

An Epistle (from the Feast of the Annunciation)

Lesson from the book of Isaias
Isa 7:10-15
In those days, the Lord spoke to Achaz: Ask for a sign from the Lord, your God; let it be deep as the nether world, or high as the sky! But Achaz answered, I will not ask! I will not tempt the Lord! Then he said, Listen, O house of David! Is it not enough for you to weary men, must you also weary my God? Therefore the Lord Himself will give you this sign: the virgin shall be with child, and bear a Son, and shall name Him Emmanuel. He shall be living on curds and honey by the time He learns to reject the bad and choose the good.
R. Thanks be to God.
