"This little book is a translation, the only one from the Latin, of the Preces Gertrudiance, a manual of devotions compiled in the seventeenth century from the Suggestions of Divine Piety of St. Gertrude and St. Mechtilde, nuns of the Order of St. Benedict. Of this work Alban Butler says, in his life of St. Gertrude, that it is " perhaps the most useful production, next to the writings of St. Teresa, with which any female saint ever enriched the Church."

PREFACE. St. Peter directs the faithful, that they should employ all care, to minister in their faith, virtue, and in their virtue Knowledge. Ignorance of the marvellous Work of God in the Redemption of Man, cannot he otherwise than a scandal and a disgrace, in one who expects to benefit by this Redemption. St. Paul writes, " Brethren, I would not that you should be ignorant" and in another place, "2" would have you to be wise in good, and simple in evil." The present...

The Holy Ghost is the Uncreated Will of God. His devout servants cannot honour Him better than by making their wills uniform with this Divine Will. This Will of God was our Lord's normal rule of conduct when on earth. He says: "I do always those things that please Him;" and again: "Not My Will but Thine be done." By willing what God wills we come to have "the mind of Christ," and being joined to the Lord, have one Spirit with Him. THE TRANSLATOR. Digitized by...

"The 'Confessions' themselves have ever been a favourite Christian study. St. Augustine says of them himself, 'The thirteen books of my Confessions praise God, Holy and Good, on occasion of that which has in me been good or evil, and raise up man's understanding and affections to Him: for myself, they did so while they were being written, and now do, when read. Let others think ofthem, as to them seems right; yet that they have and do much please many brethren, I know.'" Library of...

"During the last three centuries a multitude of biographies of S. Aloysius have appeared; but they are all more or less drawn from the same source, and have lost some of the clearness and purity of the fountain head. This source is the classical life by Father Virgil Cepari of the Society of Jesus. It is impossible to find in any other biographer of S. Aloysius the qualities which we meet with in Cepari...."
