The author writes: AFTER having offered to pious souls four volumes of Meditations, according to the method of St. Ignatius, on the Life and Mysteries of our Lord Jesus Christ, it seemed natural to consecrate at least one volume to the Feasts of the Blessed Virgin and the Saints. Among the latter, we have chosen first those whose devotion is the most widespread, as the Apostles, the Founders of Religious Orders, etc. ; second, those who, having lived in times nearer to our own, and having sanctified theInselves in common and ordinary positions of life, seem to present models more within our reach. May these holy friends of God deign to bless this little work consecrated to their glory! Above all, may the august Virgin Mary, whom they recognise as their Queen, deign to procure for those who shall use it those graces of light and of unction which, in communicating to us the knowledge of the Christian virtues, may inspire a love of them and make their practice easy! These Meditations are suited for the Feasts of the Blessed Virgin. But persons desirous of making use of them during the month of Mary can commence with the 1st Meditation, on the Immaculate Conception, and end with the 32nd Meditation, on Our Lady of Perpetual Succour.
