Seite 25 - My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations ; knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience. But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing.
Seite 79 - Earth to earth, and dust to dust, the solemn priest hath said ; So we lay the turf above thee now, and we seal thy narrow bed ; But thy spirit, brother, soars away among the faithful blest, Where the wicked cease from troubling, and the weary are at rest. And when the Lord shall summon us, whom thou hast left behind, May we, untainted by the world, as sure a welcome find!

Seite 14 - the path of the just is as the shining light, shining more and more unto the perfect day.
Seite 64 - Prior's benevolence, her active, laborious, untiring, disinterested efforts ta do good, were •what particularly distinguished her. She lived not for herself, but to relieve human misery, and win souls to Christ. The world was her field of labor, and every son and daughter of Adam shared in her sympathies. St. Paul's description of a useful woman (1 Tim. 5, 10) may with great propriety be applied to her, "She brought up children," "lodged strangers," " washed the saints' feet," " relieved the afflicted,"...
