July 1942
America;7/11/1942, Vol. 67 Issue 14, p380
The author reflects on the common and unlovely trait of people towards a widow and her children. The author correlates this attitude to the Gospel where the Lord warned people of false prophets. While a searching examination of conscience is particularly recommended at the beginning of a new year, it is very useful for those who wish to make their religion a matter of deeds.
