Стр. 222 - Joy revell'd around her — love shone at her side, And gay was her smile, as the glance of a bride ; And light was her step in the mirth-sounding hall, When she heard of the daughters of Vincent de Paul.
Стр. 19 - He said the word, and there arose a storm of wind: and the waves thereof were lifted up.
Стр. 222 - Behold her, ye worldly ! behold her, ye vain ! Who shrink from the pathway of virtue and pain ; Who yield up to pleasure your nights and your days, Forgetful of service, forgetful of praise. Ye lazy philosophers— self-seeking men, — Ye fireside philanthropists, great at the pen, How stands in the balance your eloquence weighed With the life and the deeds of that high-born maid ? THE PRETTY GIRL OF LOCH DAN.
Стр. 222 - Her sculpture — the crucifix nail'd by her bed ; Her paintings one print of the thorn-crowned head ; Her cushion — the pavement that wearies her knees ; Her music the psalm, or the sigh of disease ; The delicate lady lives mortified there, And the feast is forsaken for fasting and prayer.
Стр. 180 - Amabilia ! how awful those words of unloosing after thirty years of bondage! I felt as if my chains fell as those of St. Peter at the touch of the divine Messenger.
Стр. 222 - ... dresses each suffering limb, For she sees in the wounded the image of Him. Behold her, ye worldly! behold her, ye vain! Who shrink from the pathway of virtue and pain! Who yield up to pleasure your nights and your days, Forgetful of service, forgetful of praise. Ye lazy philosophers, self-seeking men; Ye fireside philanthropists, great at the pen; How stands in the balance your eloquence weighed With the life and the deeds of that high-born maid?
Стр. 172 - I considered that you yourself would no longer oppose, nor desire so severe a struggle which was destroying my mortal life, and, more than that, my peace with God. Still, if you will not be my brother, if your dear friendship and esteem must be the price of my fidelity to what I believe to be the truth, I cannot doubt the mercy of God, Who, by depriving me of my dearest tie on earth, will certainly draw me nearer to Him. This I feel confidently from the experience of the past, and the truth of His...
Стр. 181 - I was far richer than he, and more honored than he ever could be. Now the point is for the fruits. So far, truly, I feel all the powers of my soul held fast by Him who came with so much majesty to take possession of His little poor kingdom.
Стр. 177 - Since I cannot see the way to please you whom alone I wish to please, every thing is indifferent to me; and until you do show me the way you mean me to walk in, I will trudge on in the path you suffered me to be born in, and go even to the very sacrament where I once used to find you. So away I went, my old Mary happy to take care of the children for me once more until I came back; but if I left the house a Protestant I returned to it a Catholic, I think, since I determined to go no more to the Protestants,...
Стр. 193 - I see already numerous choirs of virgins following you to the Altar. I see your holy order diffusing itself in the different parts of the United States, spreading everywhere the good odor of Jesus Christ and teaching by their evangelical lives and pious instructions how to serve God in purity and holiness. I have no doubt, my beloved and venerable sister, that He who has begun this work, will bring it to perfection.
