Abstract: St. Gorg Preca (1880-1962) was a Maltese diocesan priest who lived his priestly vocation in total dedication to the ministry of evangelisation, giving a unique preference to the Word of God in a special way in his writings. In 1907, he founded the Society of Christian Doctrine, made up of male and female lay people, who live a celibate life in order to dedicate themselves totally to catechesis. Not only is St. Gorg Preca the founder of the Society of Christian Doctrine, but he also nourished and sustained its members through his writings, which were primarily aimed at instructing them, so that they would be able to instruct others.
