In his latest Encyclical, Our Holy Father Leo XIII exhorts the faithful to increase their devotion toward the Blessed Sacrament and points out the great advantages accruing to society in general from the Sacrament of the Eucharist, which nourishes faith, hope and charity. He lays great stress upon the fruits of redemption gathered from the Eucharist as a sacrifice, and strongly recommends pastors to encourage devotion toward the Blessed Sacrament and frequent Communion. In a former Encyclical he exhorted the faithful to greater devotion to the Blessed Virgin, and signalized his own allegiance to her by the salutation Queen of the Most Holy Rosary! This little work of Pere Eymard entitled, "Our Lady of the Blessed Sacrament," is so much in accord with the wishes of the Holy Father, that ,ve cannot help giving its appearance in English dress a most cordial welcome. We are confident that it will be much appreciated, and that devout souls will find in it many holy thoughts that will serve to increase their devotion to the Holy Eucharist and their love for Mary Immaculate, and stimulate them to strive more earnestly after a life of virtue. The Rev. Clergy will find in the work appropriate readings for May devotions. These readings possess a deep, fervent tone, which breathes the tender piety and profound religious spirit of Pere Eymard. They cannot fail to awaken sentiments of faith in the Real Presence, and of reverence for her who was raised to the sublime dignity of Mother of God. The great good accomplished in France for the edification of Christians of all classes by the writings of Pere Eymard, is sufficient to warrant the hope that these writings will accomplish the same amount of good in this country. We are, therefore, glad to hear of the prospect of all his works being translated into the English language, and gratefully acknowledge the commendable thought of the Fathers of the Blessed Sacrament
