Summary/Abstract: Editorial activity of the Publishing House “Dehon” for twenty years of its existence has been deep-rooted in charisma and mission of fr. Dehon, the founder of the Congregation of Priests of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. Fr. Dehon was the author of many social and spiritual books and articles. It is worth mentioning especially his social works because of their originality, inventiveness, and, at the same time, their full faithfulness to the social doctrine of the Church as taught by the pope Leo XIII. Three books by fr Dehon are particularly notable: “Le Règne du Cœur de Jésus dans les âmes et dans les sociétés,” „Manuel Social Chrétien,” and „Catéchisme social”. Apart from works mentioned above we have a lot of writing by fr. Dehon that still wait for their critical analysis and publication. It is an important task, because the writings of the founder remain for the member of the Congregation an exhaustible source of knowledge about life and activity of fr. Dehon. The Publishing House “Dehon” has already begun the translation and publication of some works of fr Dehon. There have been also many social and spiritual publications that draw on the same spirit. We hope and we wish that it is also continued in future.
