The Sisters of the Visitation of Wilmington, Del., have conferred a great benefit on the Catholics of all English speaking countries by translating the following beautiful meditations, meditations so full of lively faith and of sweet unction, as to deeply impress all who make use of them. The late Bishop Becker of Savannah, who had previously filled the See of Wilmington, greatly encouraged the Sisters in their labor of love, and, after perusing their translation, wrote under date of September 12th, 1895, the following words of appreciation: "These very thoughtful meditations suit every believer. Their beauty is incomparable, for they are simplicity itself. We have been both edified and instructed whilst merely reading the translation. It seems to be correct, and is given in terse English. We highly commend the work, and deem it worthy of approbation." The translators say that their translation has been a work of love, having the sanction of obedience. They humbly hope that it will receive the blessing of God and be "a love-lighted torch" to guide many souls heaven- - ward, bringing to them, as it did to the translators, peace and consolation. rrhese meditations are well calculated to benefit not only ecclesiastics and religious, but also the pious laity. The editor, in order to adapt the work to the wants and devotions of our time and country, has added the following meditations, taken principally from the Meditations of Father Bronchairn, C. SS. R. - Feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus; - for the first Friday of every month, - for the feasts of St. Francis Xavier, St. Paul of the Cross, St. Catharine of Siena, St. Philip Neri, St. Antony of Padua, Our Lady of Perpetual Help, St. Aloysius Gonzaga, Our Lady of Mount Carmel, St. Vincent de Paul, St. Alphonsus Maria de Liguori, St. Jane Frances de Chantal, Holy Name of Mary, the Holy Rosary, and St. Stanislaus Kostka.
