The best recommendation of this Second Volume of Meditations and Prayers for Holy Communion is the success of the First Volume which was published in English in the year 1869, and is now in a Fifth Edition.
The Second Volume has the same simplicity and solidity as the first. It is founded throughout on the Holy Scriptures, and it will be of especial value to those who are familiar with the Sacred Text. St. Teresa said that one chief cause of the evils of the Church in her day was ignorance of the written Word of God. St. Bernardine of Sienna says: 'Whosoever willingly hears the Word of God shows by a manifest sign, that the Spirit of God is in him.' And St. Anthony of Padua says that: “To hear the Word of God willingly is a great sign of predestination. This little book breathes the Word of God: and those that have the will to hear His Word will read it gladly.
