Society, Sin, and the Saviour
Addresses On The Passion of Our Lord by Father Bernard Vaughan of the Society of Jesus.
Impr. 1907, 279 pages.
From the Preface:
“The Passion of Jesus Christ confounds the fiend (Satan): it destroys his deceits and his snares : it slackens fleshly temptations : it clarifies the mind to covet only Jesus Christ's love. Fasten in thine heart the memory of His Passion: I wot (know) nothing that shall so inwardly take thine heart to covet God's love and to desire the joy of heavens, and to despise vanities of this world, as steadfast thinking on the hurts and the wounds, and on the death of Jesus Christ. It will raise thy thought above earthly pleasure, and set thine heart burning in Christ's love, and purchase into thy soul delight and savor of heaven. That is what this book – an “oldie but goodie”, is all about.
