Covers for all 3 are pictorial paper. Previous owner's name on title page of all 3. Père David was born on December 12th, 1917 and ordained a priest in 1942 with the Spiritan Fathers. In 1976 he was asked to assist at Les Orphelins Apprentis D'Auteuil. While composing and organizing his meditations he painted various portraits of some of the children at the orphanage and these are included in the front of each volume. Some of the plates are reproductions of well known Christian art mostly in the iconographic style. Included with each volume is a calendar of saints and a liturgical calendar. All text is in French. A rather stunning set of 3 volumes.
