Page 251 - Is any man sick among you ? Let him bring in the priests of the Church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord, and the prayer of faith shall save the sick man ; and the Lord shall raise him up : and if he be in sins, they shall be forgiven him...
Page 135 - ... injured brood. The barking of the dog, the mewing of the cat, the creaking of a passing wheelbarrow, follow with great truth and rapidity.
Page 152 - Quickly they go, for they are awful words of sacrifice, they are a work too great to delay upon, as when it was said in the beginning, " What thou doest, do quickly." Quickly they pass, for the Lord Jesus goes with them, as He passed along the lake in the days of his flesh, quickly calling first one and then another; quickly they pass, because as the lightning which shineth from one part of the heaven unto the other, so is the coming of the Son of Man. Quickly they pass, for they are as the words...

Page 42 - OI could beat myself ! and now there is no help! - the first moment, the first impression is over - is lost; though I should live a thousand years, long as Niagara itself shall roll, I can never see it again for the first time. Something is gone that cannot be restored.
Page 152 - ... to me nothing is so consoling, so piercing, so thrilling, so overcoming as the Mass, said as it is among us. I could attend Masses for ever, and not be tired. It is not a mere form of words — it is a great action, the greatest action that can be on earth. It is, not the invocation merely, but, if I dare use the word, the evocation of the Eternal. He...
Page 142 - Oh to be sprinkled from the wells Of Christ's own sacred Blood, excels Earth's best and highest bliss : The ministers of wrath divine Hurt not the happy hearts that shine With those red drops of His ! 5. Ah ! there is joy amid the saints...
Page 201 - Indians and the various curiosities and productions he had brought from the New World. The fame of his discovery had resounded throughout the nation, and, as his route lay through several of the finest and most populous provinces of Spain, his journey appeared like the progress of a sovereign. Wherever he passed, the country poured forth its inhabitants, who lined the road and thronged the villages.
