Rejoice in the Lord - Happiness in Holiness A Book of Reflections and Prayers
By Rev. F.X. Lasance.
“Rejoice in the Lord” emphasizes and unfolds the fundamental truth contained in the epigrammatic saying of Father Hecker: “The end of religion is joy– joy here no less than joy hereafter.” It is composed of three parts. The first part is a Book of Reflections. Under the caption “A Word of Good Cheer for Each Day in the Year” are gathered together from the Sacred Scriptures, and from the writing or sayings of saints and sages, words or thoughts, that will help us, if we make them our own, to maintain a spirit of cheerfulness in all our vicissitudes, that will encourage us, if we meditate on them, to cultivate the habit of looking on the bright side of things. The second part is a Book of Prayer; that is to say, a prayer-book which is suitable to all states of life for all ordinary occasions of devotion. The third part is A Little Books of Indulgenced Ejaculations and Short Prayers.
