THE FAITHFUL CONGREGATION

OF

SAINT BARNABAS', PIMLICO,

IN WHOM,

By the Grace of God,

THE HEAVY SORROW OF A PAST LENT

HATH BORN FRUITS OF MUCH PATIENCE, CONSTANCY,

AND LOVE;

TROUBLED ON EVERY SIDE,

YET

NOT DISTRESSED,

PERPLEXED, BUT NOT IN DESPAIR;

CAST DOWN,

But not destroyed :

THIS HUMBLE TOKEN OF GRATITUDE AND LOVE,

FROM ONE

WHO WATCHES FOR THEIR SOULS.

The following pages do not altogether fulfil the original design of the writer. It was his intention to have added to the “Guide and Daily Devotions," a compilation of readings and meditations, suitable for the Lenten season, gathered from the writings of the Fathers, and English Catholic Divines of the

best age.

Yet, the short interval from Christmas-tide would not suffice for the creditable execution of such a design, much interrupted, as it must needs have been, by the pressing calls of heavy pastoral responsibilities.

He hopes, however, if it shall please God to spare him to another year, to put out a companion volume to the present; which shall supply in a distinct and, therefore, perhaps, more convenient form, that course of meditation and reading which many so earnestly desire.
