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.
