"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." Care has been taken to...

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...
