IN HONOUR OF THE
SACRED HEART OF JESUS MEEK AND HUMBLE,
THE BABE OF BETHLEHEM,
THE CHILD OF NAZARETH,
THE GREAT AND ETERNAL GOD,
I dedicate this Little Book
TO ALL ENGLISH-SPEAKING CHILDREN,
WITH THE EARNEST PRAYER
THAT IT MAY HELP THEM TO LEARN OF HIM,
WHOM TO KNOW IS LIFE ETERNAL.
His Eminence the Cardinal Archbishop of Westminster has been pleased to grant one hundred days' Indulgence for the recital of the prayer 'Most Holy Child Jesus, save Thy Children,' followed by one Hail Mary.
The High Altar of the Holy Child at Bedford has been erected solely by children, all of whose names are entered in a book which lies beneath the Tabernacle. This beautiful Altar is privileged by the Holy Father, who sent his special blessing to all youthful contributors. These have also a perpetual daily memento in Holy Mass.
All future contributors to the furnishing and decoration of the Altar and Sanctuary who send their names, or names and intentions, will have them entered in the same manner and become partakers of the same privileges.
