Since we are travellers and pilgrims in the world, let us ever ponder on the end of the road, that is of our life, for the end of our roadway is our home (St Columban, 8th sermon).
Father, sorry for being off-topic, but can I ask did you do Sheehan's apologetics at school? How many of the books were there? (I have only book 2)Shane.
I recall using it in my first year in secondary school, 1956-57. I'm not sure if we used it in the following years. I remember only one volume, with a green cover.
Father, thank you. Sorry for being a pest, but as you can see Lux Occulta is becoming something of a library. Was the front cover the same as this?http://yfrog.com/0ximg044tjDid you have to memorize the stuff by rote or did just reading it suffice? Was it taken very seriously if you can recall?Also did you ever use this, come across it before, or know anything about it?http://img691.imageshack.us/i/img045o.jpg/Many thanks.
Yes, the edition of Sheehan's Apologetics in the photo was the one we used. I don't recall learning it by rote and we took it reasonably seriously. By that I mean that since there were no real exams involved - the annual diocesan exam conducted in the schools was taken as a joke - we treated it differently from other subjects. In my own case, Sheehan stimulated my desire to be a missionary priest.I'm not familiar with Fr McGrath's book.
Father, that's very helpful. Thanks.
