INTRODUCTION

'Treasury of indulgenced prayers was originally published under the title, 'The Treasury of Indulgenced Ejaculations. The first edition was based on the 'Raccolta, long the official collection of indulgenced prayers and good works. But with the appearance of 'Preces et Pia Opera, issued by the Vatican Press and now the only authentic collection of indulgenced prayers, it was evident, due to the changes in indulgences granted, the omission of some prayers, and the inclusion of other prayers, that a new edition of 'The Treasury of Indulgenced Ejaculations was most imperative.

To make the revised booklet have an even wider appeal than its predecessor had, it was decided to include not only ejaculations but also invocations and some of the more popular prayers suitable for a variety of occasions. Because of the change in subject matter, a change in the title likewise became necessary.

Nonetheless, what was written of the original booklet may also be stated of this, its successor. It is a prayer booklet. It has purposely been kept brief in order that it may be as available as possible for use at all times. And for those who read it with the intention of gaining the indulgences granted the various prayers, it will prove a golden treasury indeed.

The note in parentheses refers to the indulgence one can gain by saying the prayer. An asterisk (*) adjoining the indulgence, as in this case, indicates that, if the prayer is said every day for a month, a plenary indulgence may be gained under the usual conditions of Confession, Communion, visit to a church, and prayer for the intention of the Pope.
