|The first encyclical for the “Encyclical of the Month” program is Acerbo Nimis, On Religious Instruction, by Pope St. Pius X (see http://www.papalencyclicals.net/Pius10/p10chdoc.htm ).
First, read the encyclical. The more thorough the reading, the better. Underlining, summarization of paragraphs, and drawing diagrams are all encouraged in order to help the reader grasp the content of the text. Also, see http://www.sjbma.org/files/acerbo_nimis.pdf for a diagrammatic summary of the encyclical.
