Sunday Comics: Catholic in Action 6

First, here’s some news about a real-life Catholic in Action: Cardinal Thuan’s cause has officially opened, giving him the title Servant of God Francis Xavier Nguyen Van Thuan!  If you don’t know about him, do your soul a favor and rent this DVD or buy this book.  He’s truly an amazing future saint.

Below is part 6 of the ten-part series Catholics in Action, which ran from 1952-1953 in the Catholic school comic book Treasure Chest of Fun and Fact.  These pages come from Catholic University’s online archive.  It also features the origin of the widely-used Faith and Freedom readers, still available through Seton Educational Media.  Read on:

I can personally vouch for the high quality of the Faith and Freedom series, which helped my 2nd son learn to read when he refused to touch any other book.  That said, does anyone know about The Good Red Bricks or any of her other novels?
