Responding to a publisher’s request to write a book, Cardijn asked Marguerite Fiévez to select and compile a list of key articles that he had written over the years that could form the content.
She did so around April 1958 as follows:
The following texts have been reread and re-studied, to then be integrated into the volume, with some adaptations:
Articles in Notes de Pastoral Jociste 1935: THE LAITY and THE WORKER LAITY
PRIEST AND LAITY IN THE MISSION OF THE CHURCH: Lesson to the priests of the diocese of Breda 1951. Original in Dutch
THE LAY APOSTOLATE – Theological Research Note 1951
THE EARTHLY MISSION OF MAN AND HUMANITY : Theological research note 1951
THE WORLD TODAY AND THE LAY APOSTOLATE : Speech at the world congress of the lay apostolate, Rome 1951
THE FORMATION OF THE LAITY FOR THE APOSTOLATE: Note for the COPECIAL
THE FUTURE OF THE LAY APOSTOLATE: Note for the Secretary of State and the COPECIAL 1958
PRIESTHOOD AND LAY APOSTOLATE: Article Notes de Pastorale Jociste, December 1934
Cardijn responded approvingly:
Extract from a letter from Cardijn to Marguerite Fiévez, around March or April 1958.
The layout of the book is good. Perhaps add: “La JOC et la Paroisse” and the translation of a 1913 brochure. not the JOC. Perhaps communicate them also to the Dominican Father of the Holy Office in Rome. We will have time to talk about it.
